Ninth Island 2017 Riesling (Tasmania)

Editors' Choice

Kreglinger Wine Estates, the umbrella company for Ninth Island and Pipers Brook, snagged celebrated Hunter Valley winemaker Jim Chatto to helm their wine labels in 2017, and lucky them. This gold-hued Riesling sees some skin contact, resulting in a rich, textured style. It leads with white peach, lemon, blossoms, nougat, coconut and cashew (despite having no oak influence). Tingly acidity on the palate brightens the fruit, giving it a tang which beautifully offsets the mouthfilling texture: an intriguing food-paring wine, perhaps with spicy Chinese dishes.
