Woods Crampton Eden Valley Riesling 2020


There is lots of talk by wine people about aging Australian Riesling. You can put the wines down for ten years in some cases but for me most of the local rieslings are best soon after launch, when they are at their brightest and juiciest best, as seen in Woods Crampton’s 2020 vintage. It is pale in colour and has deliciously approachable fruit – citrus, pear and even a little spice say hello and drink me. It’s then crisp, but also has a slightly richer texture that usual which gives an attractive generosity of fruit. Give it a whirl with fish tacos.
