Pikes Traditionale Riesling 2010

Maybe it was the day.  Maybe it was the food (seafood).  Whatever, I really liked this wine.  It had an aroma of lemons.  I’ll say citrus too, but most likely it was just other citrus that smelt like lemons.  On the palate, there was crisp acidity, a nice texture and a lemon and citrus flavour.  A bargain, great drinking.  Riesling would have to be Australia’s great low priced high quality secret.  Don’t tell anyone.  87 points (7.2/10)

Abv: 12.5%
Price: around $17
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
