Frisk / Prickly Riesling Alpine Valleys / 750mL
This zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of lime sorbet, rose petals and a hint of fennel.Â With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, itâs a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes... or simply on its own. Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quicklyÂ - and have you reaching for another.
Frisk is represented by an eclectic team of winemakers located in Australia and California who believe wine is for enjoying. Period. Full stop. They don't try to baffle you with terms you've never heard of or flavors that have no business in a bottle of wine. They make delicious wine with a unique prickle to it. If it tastes a bit like nectarines, they'll tell you "this tastes a bit like nectarines." If it tastes a little like limes, or minerals? That's what they'll say. Frisk wines are grown in decidedly different climes. High in the Alpine Valleys of Australia. Places a little cooler, or sunnier, or steeper, or more obscure than the places one would expect winemakers go, because Frisk's Brilliantly Conceived Master Plan consists of Being Where The Grapes Grow Best and making wines that reflect that.
