Printhie MCC Riesling 2013

No, nothing to do with the venerable Marylebone Cricket Club, instead here MCC references the Mount Canobolas Collection, a tier of the Printhie wines' portfolio, effectively a reserve range.

Pale gold with a lime tinge. Apple, blossom, mandarin - backed up with some bath salt minerality.

Feels open, loose, a little sweetness against some crab apple sour acidity. This worked well with chilli salt and pepper king prawns that I happened to be eating.

Overall the palate structure felt lacking in shape or focus, but that's not to say it was wanting, for it was a wine of length, of persistence rather than intensity or depth. 91
