I knew nought about this wine when I purchased it, save for a decent vintage and it being Riesling from Tasmania.
Alex Russell Wines, Son Of A Bull, Riesling, Pipers River, 2018
Light lime juice, apple skin, hints of rosewater spray, green sorrel, coconut flakes and a touch of TDN (,1,6-trimethyl-1,2-dihydronaphthalene or that slight plastic, kerosene note). The body comes across insipid and wan with green lime dominance. The acidity is flat and missing the verve and spark that the best Tassie Rieslings have.
Rating: 15/20 (83/100)
