Georgia’s Paddock Riesling – 1990

Winetype:

Origin:


Time of release

Simply the best since out first in ’84. For those who like their Riesling dry, this is it. Obviously youthful, its colour exhibits a light green tinge with a floral/lime aromaticity that believes its crisp acid, dry palate. A great match now with a delicate dish (how about plain boiled yabbies) this wine like previous releases, will flesh out in time. Cellar potential 3-5 years.
