Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Made by a team of maverick winemakers hailing from Victoria’s far corners, Frisk is crafted by seasoned hands. Harvested in the chilly eve, prized free-run Riesling juice is fermented with canny yeasts that ensure the wine is sporting plenty of aromatic verve. And the prickle? A gentle spritz courtesy of those clever yeasts, captured to deliver a palate-rousing tickle.

    A really fun, easy-drinking quaffing wine, meant to be gulped rather than sipped.

    “Frisk’s gentle, slightly sweet style of Riesling is uncommon for Australia, where most Rieslings are bone-dry, steely and citrusy. The cool-climate source, Victoria’s Alpine Valley, produces a refreshing sip in part because of the grapes’ natural acidity. A touch of Muscat Gordo adds a pretty floral note. The Prickly 2010 hits the (sweet) spot.”
