Jacob’s Creek Riesling 2009

This was originally published on 12/13/2010 over at Blogarhythms.

I enjoy Rieslings – most often for their mix of tart flavors and residual sweetness.  Although this selection from Jacob’s Creek is dryer than most at 12% alcohol, it was still true to it’s kind.

Vineyard:     Jacob’s Creek
Varietal:       Riesling
Vintage:       2009
Appellation: Southeastern Australia
Price:          $6.95
Notes:     As I mentioned, I enjoy the juxtaposition of tart and sweet that a Riesling brings to the palate while usually remaining lighter and crisper than say a Gewürztraminer.  What was this one like?  It was quite pleasant and rather straightforward. To me the flavors showed a very present core of lime with some hints of grapefruit and grass.  I liked it.  At $4.99 on sale, I’d definitely drink it again!
