DRY RIESLING IS THE PERFECT APERITIF!
Ontario has converted many drinkers to the exciting and edgy world of dry Riesling. If you’re a fan you might be interested in exploring another good source of this grape – Australia. Yes, the land of rich Chards can also knock-off cool, crisp Rieslings.
Jacob’s Creek is an amazing winery because it delivers boutique quality in million case volumes. The Aussie-style Riesling is quite austere, with lots of tension and vivacity. Lime/lemon flavor is just a tease. A classy aperitif, or oyster wine. Fans may want to consider aging a few bottles.
