This wine comes from the Alpine Valley province in the Australian state of Victoria. This is a mountainous province with slopes going up to 2,000 feet. And by the taste of this wine, I’d say it’s a fantastic province for riesling.
Well-balanced citrus, floral and melon aromas give this wine a pleasant nose. The palate has a slight effervescence, hence the “prickling” name. It’s not a full-on sparkling wine, it’s just ever-so-slightly bubbly, but that characteristic gives the wine a really nice mouth feel.
It’s an simple quaffer, at below 9% alcohol, and a fantastic wine for a hot summer day. It would also be a superb choice to go with spicy Thai food.
