Fewer whites age more gracefully than that of a riesling, with its naturally high acidity giving it the legs to run through the years and supporting the beautiful citrusy notes to enrich and flesh out. This stunner from a mofo fav has all the hallmarks of a classic aged riesling. It’s soft as a pillow. Aromatics of freshly toasted bread and an abundance of lemon butter dances over the palate. The finish sings high and bright with fleshy ripe citrus fruits. This rizza will be so much fun to drink over the next several years as you notice these characteristics continue to develop. Fresh mussels cooked in cream, wine, shallots, a pinch of pepper and grilled french bread stick and you’re on your way to nirvana like decadence.

Coonawarra is renowned for its cabernet. To write off other varieties, though, would be simplistic. Some of the best wine from the region is shiraz, which is frequently overlooked in the search for the perfect cab sav. It's riesling is a surprise dark horse, too. Not to belittle Coonawarra cab either, but it's funny how often we get caught insisting that one variety is the best expression of a specific place, grown in a variable environment with so many factors at play. All we're saying is: don't miss the great wines that aren't the usual suspects. Coonawarra has quite a few amazing hands other than their trump card.
