Riversdale Estate Roaring 40s Riesling 2015

Riversdale Estate is situated in the Coal River region of Tasmania, and have produced here a lovely riesling.  With latitudes including the 42s, while mainland Australia does not breach the 40 degree mark, it comes as no surprise that Tasmania is starting to realise its potential for cool climate wines.  This riesling is dry and fresh, striking just the right balance between its length, flavour and acidity.  It has stone and lemon aromatics, with a crystalline character.
