Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) This zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of lime sorbet, rose petals and a hint of fennel. With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, it’s a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes...or simply on its own. Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quickly - and have you reaching for another.

    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.”
