Review: 2011 White Rabbit Riesling

Image

Sometimes wines are judged on a scale of how memorable, epic or earth shattering they are. Sometimes we yearn for a wine with complexity and grace. And sometimes we just want a wine that is inexpensive, delicious and that makes us want to tip back our heads and drink from the bottle. The 2011 White Rabbit Riesling is a perfect example of the later.

A touch of sweetness, refreshing acidity and a burst of mouth watering fresh fruit flavours makes this the perfect patio pounder. This is not a wine that commands contemplation or evaluation…it demands to be served chilled down in the company of good friends and a beautiful Summers day. And even though some wine geeks may cringe at the notion, for $14 you can even throw an ice cube in if you are so inclined (bendy straw not included).

Pack this on your next picnic with fresh summer salads, a spicy watermelon or papaya salad or a big scoop of lemon sorbet. 

Cheers!
