Riversdale Estate 2013 Riesling - Coal River Valley

ANOTHER ripper Tasmania Riesling – perfect match with
alt and pepper calamari, or chicken enchiladas.

ONE TO NOTE:  TASMANIAN makers have thrown up some ripper Rieslings over the years, products of the State's cool maritime climate that the variety thrives in.

One such maker is Riversdale Estate in the southern Coal River Valley region just 20km out of Hobart, and which has recently released a beautifully rewarding 2013 Riesling under its ultra-premium Cygnus label. Here's a wine made from fruit harvested in small bunches in peak-condition, and loaded with concentrated varietal characteristics and excellent natural acidity.

It's nice forward, yet still delicate, citrus and musk flavours will particularly match beautifully with salt and pepper calamari, or pair it with chicken enchiladas. At $34 it's available online at,  by phoning (03) 6248 5555 or at the cellar door if you are visiting down that way.

 for week beginning 19 September  2016
