The überblanc is über tasty. According to winemaker Nick Glaetzer, the 2016 season was another great vintage for Tasmanian Riesling and it shows in this ultra succulent release. It's got a bit more going on than classic lemon/lime Riesling, the fruit feels a little sunnier, there a little grip to it, it even went through full malo! It has interest and drinkability in spades. With 93 points from Gary Walsh, suffice to say its delicious drinking and you'll not be disappointed.
What it Tastes Like
"Juicy and perfumed. It’s lavender and candied cumquats, lime and a dusting of white pepper, with a whiff of just baked bread. Good burst of flavour – stonefruits and sweet lime – slight chalkiness, fine acidity and a long savoury finish. Fascinating wine." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
