|Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:|
Why I Tried this Wine: Feathersone Estate Winery uses hawks to ward off birds from eating their grape crops and sheep to prune the vines. I thought this was pretty cool. Plus, I read all about the winery in Natalie's book "Unquenchable: A Tispy Quest for the World's Best Bargain Wines"
Tasting Notes: a very pale yellow with a greyish green hue.
Aromas of citrus lemon and lime as well as green apple, minerality and petrol. ( I like my Rieslings to have petrol aromas )
There are flavours of citrus, minerality and what I think to be the most prevelant, green apple.
The mouthfeel is crisp, fresh and zingy.
The wine finishes with a green apple flavour and lingering acidity with slight bitterness.
Would I Buy this Wine again: yes, it's a good wine to have through the week, in the evening just to relax. I feel like it would be a crowd pleaser and a good wine to gift or take to a friends. Drink alone or try pairing with spicy dishes.
