Mitchelton 2009 Blackwood Park Riesling

Central Victorian winery Mitchelton, which is celebrating its 40th birthday this year, has an excellent reputation for its powerful shirazes and oaked marsannes, but for me it is the rieslings that are the star turn. The 2009 vintage, made by talented young winemaker Ben Haines, has typical floral and citrus aromas and flavours, wonderful pristine fruit and tight crisp acid. This zingy, zesty number is one of Australia's great wine bargains at $17-18.
