Freycinet Vineyard 2020 Riesling

Tasmania is much under-rated as a source of top-notch dry riesling. Freycinet Vineyard, on the warmer east coast, is one of the state's most reliable quality producers and this certainly hits a bullseye when paired either with fresh local seafood or spicy Asian dishes. Young Tasmanian rieslings can be ultra-high in acid when young, and in my opinion are in "the zone" at around two years of age. This is floral and elegant with some lively fresh citrus notes, mineral hints and plenty of length on the palate. Top-notch summer drinking. There is still some of the 2020 vintage available in retail outlet. $32.
