White Wines

Rag & Bone Riesling, Magpie Estate


Essentially dry (just 4 grams of sugar per litre) - this is a perfumed and charming example of a style for which Australia is now renowned. Lemon sorbet, lime zest with bright aromatics, classic style with intensity and charm, and spice."
The nose classically expresses the vineyard... it's like having a fresh lime in your hand that you crush gently over minerals... literally lime on the rocks!! The palate is bright, zingy, singing with natural acidity. It reflects the vineyard with it's fine sandy texture with really bright , white textural fruit. Everything you want from an Aussie Riesling.

Perfect with white fish.
