Shadowfax Riesling 2010

The Geelong region is not known for its riesling.  However, this is a wine of some interest from the well regarded Shadowfax winery in Werribee.  Handpicked and whole bunch pressed (with fermentation allowed to commence with natural yeasts), an aroma of citrus rind and minerals emerged from the glass on this warm and sunny day.  The palate reveals quite a pronounced intensity expression of tangy lemons and stones, and a texture that had more body than is typical of the grape.  A generous and enjoyable wine to be consumed over the next few years.  87 points

Price: $22

Tasted: November 2011
