Rochford Riesling 2006

Rochford is of course not Rockford of "Basket Press" fame.  It used to confuse me when I knew little about wine, whereas now, I know slightly less than that.  Being from the Yarra Valley, at least it doesn't have "Yering" in its name.  Yering Station, Yarra Yering, Chateau Yering, Yering Farm ... you get the point.  I quite enjoyed this riesling, made from a blend of Yarra Valley and Macedon Ranges fruit.  An aroma of toast and citrus.  On the palate, some bracing acidity and a lemony note.  84 points (6.9/10)

Abv: 12.5%
Price: around $25
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
