Lovely dry New World Riesling at its very best
I don’t think any of us will be surprised to discover that this Adnam’s own label wine is in fact being made by the great John Forrest, maker of The Doctors wines (winning two of our 5-star ratings) and pioneer of the New Zealand lower alcohol wine movement. With this pedigree, Adnams was assured of getting an uncompromised new world Riesling – 9.5% ABV, delightfully dry and packed with flavour.
Kumquat, apples, citrus, lychees, apricots and (I suppose inevitably) kiwis tumble across your taste buds, balanced with a lively, even possibly spritzy, acidity that for our panel just strayed into the overly citrus, hence our 4.5 rating. But I think others will give it a straight 5, as what the acidity brings is an assured dryness. Indeed, I think this must be the driest 9.5% Riesling that a human could make.
This is a great addition to the Adnams lower ABV range of classic wines and I believe will become a staple of The Light Drinker’s cellar.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
