Patina Wines Sticky Tea Riesling 2018

A unique style here, winemaker Gerald Naef calls it “sticky/aperitif style with a bit of an iced tea slant.”

Patina Wines, Sticky Tea, Riesling, Orange, 2018


There’s visible viscosity swirling in the glass. Unique: Orange & mandarin peel and dried pieces, ginger spice, white tea and earthy/floral chamomile. Just medium bodied juxtaposition between dessert and aperitif style, both refreshing and opulent. Impressive acid drive tempered with grippy, skin tannins through a clean finish.

RRP: $25
Alc: 9.9%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
