The Pizzini family make an excellent range of wines in the King Valley in north-east Victoria but it is hard to go past this delightfully savoury blend for everyday drinking pleasure. A perfect partner for pizza or pasta dishes, it is extremely food friendly and very quaffable. Medium-bodied and boasting sweet fruit and some gentle spice, it is a wine for enjoying with family and friends. $20.

This is an absolutely ripping riesling from the Tamar Valley in Tasmania that took out the honours at the recent Festivale tasting. It’s fresh as a daisy (bottled only a few weeks ago) with vibrant aromas, bright Granny Smith and lively fresh lemon and lime zest notes on the palate, crunchy acidity and pristine minerality. It ticks all the boxes for dry riesling and would be fantastic with freshly shucked oysters, fish and chips or spicy Asian dishes. If you haven’t tried a Tassie riesling for a while this is the one to go for. $28. www.goatyhill.com.au.
