Some Young Punks Riesling Monsters, Monsters, Attack! 2009

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Vintage: 2009
Type: Riesling
Country: Australia – Clare Valley

If you thought that bright, juicy Rieslings could only originate from Germany or the Alsace region, think again. This Australian beauty just bursts with fruity fragrances and flavours that make my mouth water.

The bottle is tall and slim like most Germanic whites but the label is thoroughly untraditional: it has a scene of Godzilla attacking a city and all the skyscrapers falling down. Could this be a metaphor for the Riesling knocking my taste buds out?

This went down well with a salmon fillet and oriental stir fry.
