Some Young Punks Monsters Monsters Attack Riesling 2013

Purchased this with the express intent of pairing it with a favoured chilli prawn dish of the household.

Offers more in the fleshy tropical fruit spectrum than what you'd expect from a traditional dry Clare Riesling.

Textural spread, the sugar adds width and a broad fleshy spread on entry. Citrus more prevalent, comes across as a syrupy fruit salad when confronted with a little spice - sadly lacking there. Actually preferred this as a stand-alone wine, unable to take the heat, I took it out of the kitchen into the lounge. 89
