Alkoomi White Label Riesling 2019

Hotly anticipated at Chateau Vinsomniac, the White Label releases from Alkoomi represent great value - and yes, I appreciate I likely offer this words each vintage - across the range.

A veritable pot pouri here: suggestions of lemongrass, apple blossom, even a touch of lychee and peach skins in the frame. It’s sure to hell inviting, reeling in on aroma alone.

Touch of texture and weight to it, acid is not wanting, but it’s not just a “linear Larry” (as one might imagine), being of an altogether softer bent in the wine.

A subtle generosity to it, although I did find myself anticipating greater length and intensity of flavour, and indeed that’s what I would be expecting to consider it an excellent wine. Still, bloody happy to go here. 90
