Derwent Estate Riesling 2010
A pale lemon in colour, it opened to an aroma of white nectarines, ginger, lemons and stones. My expectation was that the palate would not be dry based on the aroma. However, it was - well perhaps not completely - but certainly dry enough. Near long length made it stand out, as well has good acidity, although perhaps not as racy as some. Nectarines and floral elements dominated the flavours. I was impressed by this wine, finding it offering drinkability and a Germanic like character all in a $25 wine. 90 points (extremely good)
Price: around $25
Vendors: try Nicks
Tasted: May 2012
