Travel north of Sauvignon for a lip-smackingly, refreshing mouthful. This Aussie Riesling will dispel the sweet Riesling fear.

Vintage: 2014

If you can’t believe that all riesling is not sweet, try this.
If you love New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, try this.
If you like your whites lip-smackingly crisp, try this.
If you love tropical, zesty, intense wines that aren’t too sweet, try this.
If you like your wines to be lighter than 13%, try this (it’s 12%).

This is a great, fresh, easy-drinking white which manages to be intense in flavour without being heavy. New world riesling tends to stay on the dry side, making it more akin to a Sauvignon than a soft German riesling so it is a great alternative if you’ve become attached to the tropical flavours of New Zealand riesling.
Where the White Central line is all about lemony citrus flavours the Aromatic line has a softer fruitiness and Riesling is more lime sherbet and granny smiths than mouth puckering grapefruit and lemon. The Tesco Tingleup is a great example of this, with a lovely caramelised lime flavour that would work brilliantly with oily fish with some charring and spices (we recommend the delicious Tandoori Fish Tikka from Maunika Gowardhan’s Indian Kitchen). I find the acidity such that I think you need something to nibble with a glass, happily it’s a versatile food wine pairing well with salads, pork dishes and blue cheese and crackers, which is how I last had it.
