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
