2014 Pirie South Riesling

Pirie South Riesling 2013A friend of mine has been talking a lot about Tasmanian Riesling lately and I'm starting to see why.  This Riesling from Andrew Pirie in the Tamar Valley is absolutely delicious.

I gave this a swirl and right away was impressed with the flowery nose.  Almost reminded me a bit of a Sauvignon Blanc, but without any trace of passionfruit or gooseberry.  There was a great minerality to this wine with nice steely acidity that gave it great balance.  I plan on grabbing half a case of these for my new wine fridge and watching them develop over the next few years.
