2012 Jacob’s Creek Classic Riesling

jacobs creek classic rieslingThis won a gold medal at the 2012 Royal Adelaide Wine Show. It’s great value, especially as you can find it for as little as $6 but a gold medal wine it ain’t. Still, probably not the biggest howler of a result from the 2012 Royal Adelaide…

Extremely ripe lime juice provides an impression of sweetness. Floral whispers, lemon suds and green apple skins on the back palate. It’s not especially structured, focused or intense but it has admirable “drink now” appeal at the price. 88 Good
