About

Flor Marche are making waves in the Great Southern. Searching out unique vineyards, treating the fruit with respect. Giving value and interest to the drinker with a keen eye on aesthetics and punter-friendly wine styles. It's a very promising operation run by Skigh and Elizabeth. Their Malabre Riesling is a slightly more 'serious' wine then their value-packed sub-$20 range of wines. It's made from a single vineyard in Mount Barker, built for intensity as well as approachability. A tiny amount of residual sugar (9grams/litre) keeps the palate from being too unforgiving as a young wine yet the length and steeliness from the vineyard shines through. Mike Bennie gave this vintage 91 points calling it "delicate, pure, sweet and tart together." Another super value release from this rising producer. Only 100 dozen made.

What it Tastes Like

"It dances on the palate, feels at once mineral water dashed with sweet lime cordial and something more sophisticated. It’s delicate, pure, sweet and tart together. It’s a wine for knocking back with gusto two seconds after you’ve wiped the bottle down for skerricks of ice out of the chiller. It stretches out on the palate well, then finishes with a drizzle of ripe lemony pucker. Just yum." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
