Knappstein Hand Picked Riesling 2013

Knappstein is not a winery that I drink much of their wine but I do drink a large amount of their beer. The winery is part of the larger Lion Nathan stable with much of the grapes from the mature vineyards making their way to Petaluma.

This is rather special with the core of the wine the wonderful acid line running from the initial hit to the far reaches of my tongue. If the wine was a cricketer it would be a world class fast bowler as it delivers great line and length. The flavours don't really matter but they are fresh and floral with a lovely violet note before lemon grass and orange zest kick in. These flavours take a while to come out so I would recommend leaving it in the cellar for a bit.

Alc: 12.5%
Price: RRP $20 but a quick google search put the wine at $13
Rated: 93
Drink: 2015 - 2025
