Alter Weg Riesling 2019
Mike Bennie thewinefront.com.au July 2020
The ‘old way’, or so the story goes. Raised in barrel, left on lees, texture played with. This has been a bit of a revelation in its short life span in the suite of Frankland Estate riesling wines. Organic farmed, organic made.
Playful golden colour in the glass. Apple pie scents, lime juice, sandalwood and warm wet slate. Beautiful thing to sniff on. Grip and pucker in texture but so very fine, so precise, and all up so moreish and incredibly good to drink. Concentrated but light flavours, a sense of minerality strong and woven through the wine through a very long and mount-watering finish. Upper echelon riesling here. Such filigree and finesse. Ludicrous price for how good it is.
