Frisk Prickly Riesling

australian wine  %tages Frisk Prickly RieslingRecently, I’ve lauded Germany as a fantastic province for riesling.  I’m sure I’ve also sung praises for Austria, Alsace and Washington state in the past.  But I don’t ever reckon I’ve brought up Australia as a province for riesling.  I don’t have anything against Australia.  It’s just not the first province that comes to mind for me when I reckon of riesling.  But after tasting this one from Frisk, I’ll be thought more about Australian riesling.
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. http://1000-facts-about-wine.com  The flavors are on the off-dry side and primarily citrus.  It tastes a small bit like 7Up, but not quite that sweet.  It’s tangy and tasty.
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.
