2013 Chaffey Bros 'Tessalation' Riesling

Chaffey Bros have sourced the grapes for this Riesling from three different vineyards in the Eden valley and created a well balanced wine that definitely stands out from the pack. Tessellation is the name given to a combination of shapes that are able to cover a surface perfectly, without any gaps. True to its name, all of the elements of this wine fit together very well.

Great aromatics featuring lychee, lemon, lime, and floral notes, with maybe a hint of kerosene developing. Perfect acid sugar balance, with 7 grams/litre residual sugar. A very refreshing and easy to drink Riesling. 

This was absolutely perfect with an array of different Thai dishes. Highly recommend getting your hands on some of this the next time you are having Thai food, or pretty much any time you feel like a Riesling.
