Capital Wines [ACT], 'The Whip' Riesling 2021

This 2021 Capital Wines 'The Whip' Riesling, labelled after political party officials who round up members around the parliamentary chambers and organise party business, is a refreshing example of a well-crafted cool-climate young Riesling.

This wine, sourced from grapes sourced around the ACT region, reflects the varietal clarity, definition and subtle but lingering cool-climate aromas and flavours.

Fragrances of lime blossom and quince mingle with an astringent grab of crisp citrus characters.
The hint of mid-palate sweetness combined with the zesty natural acid spine, makes this a very enjoyable cool-climate Riesling with promises of emancipation and elegance.

It's currently a good accompaniment to salt 'n' pepper squid
