It’s been a little while since we’ve reviewed a Costco Riesling, and this is a good one to jump back in with. It is a very nice wine for $12.99. I prefer drier Rieslings like this that are not too sweet but packed with fruit flavor.
This bottle hails from Australia’s Eden Valley, and I should note that it was also #56 on Wine Spectator’s list of their top 100 wines of 2012. The wine is full of tropical fruit flavor, lots of pineapple and a burst of lemon-lime on the finish. Although the weather has been pretty cold across much of the country, this is a perfect summer sipper. It’s also the kind I like to pair with spicy food.
This is a great white and it’s dry approach makes it much more accessible than many sweeter Rieslings.
