2011 Frisk ‘Prickly’ Riesling, Victoria, Australia

When first poured, this looks more like a carbonated beverage, somewhere between frizzante and sparkling wine. A blend of 89% Riesling and 11% Muscat Gordo, this pleasant summer sipper has a sweet nose of peach and apple, with floral overtones. In the mouth, there is a racy effervescence that keeps the sugar from being cloying. It’s a great wine as an aperitif, but would go equally well with spicy Thai dishes. While not a classic varietal Riesling, this is still a very enjoyable quaffer.
