Glaetzer-Dixon 2015 Uberblanc Riesling

A stunning cool-climate riesling from Nick Glaetzer of Glaetzer-Dixon Wines in Tasmania that's perfect for pairing with Christmas fare like oysters, prawns and other seafood delights. As the name suggests, it is made in homage to the Pfalz rieslings that entranced Glaetzer when he worked a vintage at Weingut Eugen Muller in Germany in 2001. Think enticing florals, bright flinty minerality, lively citrus flavours, zingy acidity and some textural mouthfeel. A wine that is beautifully balanced and should be served chilled, but not too cold. $26.
