Rieslingfreak No.5 Clare Valley Off-Dry Riesling 2017
This wine’s a lovely combination of ripe citrus notes, caramelised pineapple and tart apricot, with a whiff of musk and has more weight in the mouth from that bit of extra sugar. But don’t expect overt sweetness – the robust acid counterbalance gives a crisp, clean finish. So easy to enjoy - especially at only 10% alcohol. Yum.

The popularity of this wine took John by surprise last vintage and it sold out much quicker than expected. At last it seems astute drinkers are appreciating this style of wine which pairs so well with so many foods. Get in quick.
