Judges Comments:

This Riesling is dry with beautiful grapefruit marmalade flavours and is both focused and youthful with juicy lemony acidity and texture. The flavours seem endless, which is why it’s this year’s Champion. Riesling is not only a great value wine, it’s also one of the most food-friendly wines complimenting Indian, Asian, Spanish, North African and South American dishes. With seafood, think ceviche, Kokoda or sashimi.

Pairing Recommendation:

Delicate and often floral in character, a great match to Asian inspired foods, antipasti and pre-dinner nibbles, as well as chips and dips. Perfect with a light lunch, picnic, cheeseboard, Mexican dishes and coconut-based curry sauces. Pair with cheeses like mozzarella, brie, camembert and feta.
