Ferngrove 2017 Dry-Style Riesling

The remote Frankland River region of Western Australia has become a "go to" region for riesling lovers with some excellent quality and value to be found across the board. This very good example from Ferngrove highlights the quality cool-climate fruit and bright natural acidity found in the area. Floral, refreshing and with a hint of spice from the addition of a tiny portion of gewurztraminer, this is disturbingly drinkable with citrus notes, some sweet fruit and a solid acid backbone. Pair with pan-fried whiting fillets or take it to a Vietnamese eatery. $20.
