Australian Wine Reviews Galafrey 2016 Reserve Riesling

GALAFREY DRY GROWN RESERVE RIESLING 2016

September 1, 2016

Galafrey Dry Grown Reserve Riesling 2016

Following on in this line of ’16 Riesling comes another crazy cheap wine. Is Riesling our most under-priced variety? It would be easy to make a case in the positive…

The appeal of the Galafrey wines is always about their concentration. The benefits of dry-grown grapegrowing writ large. This, fittingly, is tight and dense – you can feel the intensity of the flavour at every angle. There’s some of the classic, cooked lime and jasmine of Great Southern Riesling, and backed by a surprisingly ripe palate (given the low alcohol).

Strictly speaking this is just a bit linear and firm for immediate enjoyment, but the length and coiled power all point to a more than healthy future ahead. And just $25/bottle? Superb value. Best drinking: 2017-2027+. 17.7/20, 92/100+. 12%, $25. Would I buy it? I’d knock off most of a bottle no sweat.
