Shaw Estate Riesling 2018

Beautifully fragrant from Canberra District's Shaw Estate here. It's all manner of things, ranging from crisp green apple and kaffir lime, to a little bath salt and delicate soft tropical fruit.

I'd personally be looking to harness those aromatics and marry to some spice, think Thai green mango salad or such, pack some heat, add some scallops even - for an Aussie take on a classic.

At 5g residual it's not sweet, but there's a little unfermented in there and that adds to the texture and body. Doubly adding to its case as a screamer for some chilli, in my humble.
