When you have to label your Riesling as dry, it’s a slightly sad state of affairs of the preconceptions people (still) have about Riesling being sweet.
Chateau Tanunda, Grand Barossa, Dry Riesling, Barossa, 2022
Citrus driven: Grapefruit and lime with sweeter hints of mandarin juice over earthy pebbles. With a little flesh, roundness and a prickle from the alcohol, it retains decent focus. Crackling acidity through the dry finish for vinous refreshment. Serve with big plate of flash fried whitebait.
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
