Patina Riesling 2013

I found this 2013 riesling from Patina Wines in Orange to be quite a good one.  It is lemon-green in colour in the glass and has aromatics of lemon, stone, apple and lemon peel.  The 7g/l of residual sugar is well disguised by the high acidity on the palate, and I think winemaker and owner Gerald Naef has got the balance exactly right.  There's otherwise flavours of lemon and yellow apples and a nice medium length finish.  This is a very balanced wine that works well.

Rating: Good, Abv: 11.2%, Price: $25, Source: sample, Vendors:, Website:, Tasted: 2014
