Domaine Dawnelle 2016 Riesling

Michael O'Brien has worked as viticulturist at several vineyards in Tasmania and clearly has a keen eye for a good one; sourcing some excellent fruit for his Domaine Dawnelle label against fierce competition. This is a new-release riesling - his first - and it is mighty impressive. Made from fruit from several (cooler) southern Tasmanian vineyards, this is made from lightly pressed whole bunches, cool fermented and matured in stainless steel. It's all about the fruit; intensely citrusy with crisp natural acid. Great with Thai dishes. $36.
