MAD FISH 2012 Riesling $ 18
Great Southern, WA 12.0 per cent
GLOWING mid- yellow colour with bright, lime zest aromas, the palate also nicely lime and floral tasting with just a touch of aged honey- ness providing added appeal before finishing clean and appetisingly dry. Good value.
FROGMORE CREEK 2013 Riesling $ 24
Southern Tasmania 12.5 per cent
A VERY fine, delicate and pristine style with lovely green apple and lime blossom aromas and flavours, the palate intense and tightly structured around a core of juicy acid before closing with a hint of lime cordial- like sweetness on the beautifully crisp, sherbet- fresh finish.
THE YARD 2013 Riesling $ 25
Frankland River, WA 11.5 per cent
A MORE open, up- front style than the Frogmore Creek, less intense, broader and fleshier with toast and marmalade- like flavours coupled with touches of spice, the palate lightweight but nicely textured and with some depth and richness in a pleasing, popular- drinking style.
PARISH VINEYARD 2013 Riesling $ 29
Penna, Tasmania 11.5 per cent
INITIALLY a rather muted style with only faint suggestions of the bright citrusy lift on the nose and palate that one expects from a Tasmanian Coal River Riesling. Given an hour or so in the glass, the wine opened up considerably to provide much more enjoyable drinking. So give it air or some cellar time.
