92 Points / 4.5-Star Winery (Halliday)
Country of Origin: Australia
Region: King Valley
Type: White wine
Grape variety: Riesling
We love the balance, winemaking quality, and versatility of this wine. Superb on its own, but can pair with antipasto, seasfood, poultry, or pork dishes. Most of all we love the price. Buy by the case.
As crisp as the climate of its King Valley home, this wine is an exciting expression of one of the world’s classic white grape varieties. With a delicious balance of natural acidity and citrus zest, its lime and floral front palate flavours are supported by distinct structural acidity, giving great length of flavour. An attractive wine while young, upon careful cellaring it will develop subtle toast and honey complexity. Riesling is also a building block on which Chrismont’s reputation stands today, being some of the first vines planted by Arnie and Arnaldo Pizzini in the early 80’s.
Enjoying wine is always better with good company.
