Shaw Vineyard Estate Winemaker's Selection Riesling 2017

Affordable and approachable Riesling from Canberra District's Shaw Vineyard Estate. Has a fancy new livery on the range, freshened up and also to distinguish it further from the Estate range a rung up the ladder.

Opens with apple blossom florals, lime; peppery flecks in the mix too.

Light, limey tang - rather than full acid assault - has the sense of being rather more rounded in the palate, not the linear, razor-sharp Rieslings that we can find in, say, the Eden Valley.

Gentle play of flavour that slowly ebbs, not so much the flow. Pleasant experience.89
