Press Reviews

*Value choice of the month*
Fresh with the scent of lemons and limes and a gentle spritz on the tongue, this juicy dry Australian Riesling with its refreshingly citrusy fruit quality and zestily crisp dry finish is just the ticket on a warm summer’s day.’
‘Pairs nicely with: Shellfish, ceviche, smoked salmon.

The New World is also home to very dry Rieslings. Here, Jim Barry, one of the best-known names in Aussie winemaking, has combined with the Clare Valley, home to some of the best rieslings, to come up with the Barry & Sons Riesling Clare Valley 2017, a class act with appealing zesty citrus flavours. If you are a bit unsure about Riesling, try this and be converted.

I don't think I can come up with two more refreshing still wines for hot weather than dry Riesling and Assyrtiko. I’ve made the Clare Riesling my Wine of the Week, but I recommend the Barry’s family’s Assyrtiko, too. It’s the follow-on vintage to the 2016, the first Assyrtiko not just in Australia but anywhere outside Greece (there's more about it here and see picture below). The 2017 is juicy and fruity with softly smoky lime and lemon flavours and pithy acidity (£19.90, Tanners). The Riesling, a more familiar Clare Valley variety, has floral and apple aromas with a whiff of smoky minerals, tangy bright citrus and canteloupe melon flavours and zippy acidity. It goes with all sorts of Southeast Asian dishes, including tangy, fresh and salty ones, also comes into its own with griddled prawns, other crustacean, shellfish and salads and it’s a very useful picnic all-rounder. 12%.
