My wine socks (see below) weren’t the only things we bought at Puddleduck Vineyard in the Coal River Valley in Tasmania – we were also quite partial to their 2018 Riesling for $30.
We visited the cellar door on Easter Sunday and it’s safe to say it’s a hot spot for locals and visitors – it was simply bustling. As the tasting counter was full to the brim, we got to door our tasting at a table which made it nice and relaxed in amongst all the hustle and bustle.
Some fun facts about the family owned and operated Puddleduck:????
- They have an energy neutral winery
- Reverse BYO is their unique concept where you’re invited to bring your own food & buy beverages from them
- They have one of the best collections of fun wine accessories I’ve seen, hence the wine socks!
Now, what is their dry Riesling like..?
Here are my notes:
Pale lemon-lime color on the eye. The nose is full of lime, feijoa, green apple, and minerality. While in the mouth it’s everything you want on a Riesling – fresh, crisp and refreshing. It went wonderfully with our dips & cheeses after a long hard day of wine tasting.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
