Thistle Hill 2010 Riesling
Winery/Brand: Thistle Hill
The follow-up offering from the highly awarded 2009 vintage, this wine is a light pale yellow with a hue of gold and caramel. The nose is pristine, floral and citrus tinged leading into a palate that is flooded with ripe fruit flavours and a long, lingering finish that shows a subtle smoky peach essence.
CELLARING: 6-8 years
FOOD MATCH: This lovely wine is an exceptional food wine and you will find it hard to pair it with a food that does not work! It is however, ideal with fish, fresh seafood, oysters, lobster and prawns but accompanies fresh salads with a fruit compliment as well as smoked hams, pork dishes and grilled chicken.
