Austins & Co Riesling 2015

Austin's from the Moorabool Valley in Geelong is a winery I have not tasted a lot from, and this riesling is a very good start.  It's situated at Sutherlands Creek on the other side of Bannockburn, and will see me shortly delve into the history books to find out a bit more about it.  The 2015 riesling tasted here is very cool climate in expression.  Stones and green apple aromatics yield to a fresh palate with notes of apple, lime zest and a youthful petillance.  Fresh and agreeably high in acidity, this is a good riesling.
