Alongside the new reds in the range, the whites are from up on the hill.
Jacob’s Creek Barossa Signature Riesling, Eden Valley, 2016
Light lime and lemon juice and rocks, it takes some work to evoke more but finally some lemon citrus blossom emerges. Soft, talcy, floury texture with tart acidity which jags more than it zings. Wan and a little thin, this is an acceptable “riesling” without the X Factor.
