Pizzini Riesling 2013

The King Valley is a lovely picturesque area with many wineries and food shops but that is not the only thing going on. Once a year in October the locals and other competitors get their fitness groove on and take on a triathlon. The event starts at Lake William Hovell which is a magnificently breathtaking start to the event. The 15k run takes you through sandy flats and rustic gum before a 12k Kayak on the Lake which starts out at the boat yard and ends on the calm end of town. This is then followed by a 39k bike ride and a 3k sprint. After the event there are so many wineries and boutique beer store I suggest that you get stuck in to them.


Pizzini Riesling 2013

Ticks all the rizza boxes and is worth every cent of the 16 bucks of the RRP. The wine starts out very floral before some lemon drops kicks in on the mid-palate. While my notes say high in acid it isn’t that noticeable compared too many of this style from Eden Valley or the Clare Valley.  What I would say is the style is highly drinkable and would work well once the weather starts heating up.
