Hewitson Eden Valley Riesling 2006

I haven’t tried many Australian Rieslings. This one is clear lemon-green, with a nice apricot-petrol nose. A bit of a disappointment on the palate; initially dull acidity, though it comes out more in the finish, and somewhat muted apple and grapefruit flavours. 12.5% alcohol. I reserve full judgement until I try some more from Oz, but I don’t enjoy this as much as some of our recent British Columbia Rieslings. A bit pricey at $26.50 (Crosstown). See Hewitson.
