La Frenz Winery 2012 Riesling - 90pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Date Tasted: August 31st, 2013
Tasting Notes: The aromatic intensity is back for the 2012 edition of the La Frenz Riesling - always one of the valley's best constructed examples of the Germanic varietal - with ripe, tangy honeydew melon, grapefruit and Asian pear aromas escaping from the glass supported by light tropical notes. Off-dry levels of residual sugar are well-balanced by the mouth-watering green apple and pineapple acidity on the palate adorned with boisterous orchard and tropical fruit flavours. A nice vein of minerals runs through the palate to the long, balanced finish where just a hint of spice is perceptible. A supremely consistent wine for La Frenz worth aging for 1-2 more years if you have the patience. Drink now-2016.
