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
Appellation: Southeastern Australia
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!
