If you’ve been following along with the blog this year, then you’ll know that we visited Tasmania in April and loved it. It’s also safe to say they make bloody good Riesling down there! Unfortunately we didn’t make it to Riversdale Estate, however there will be a another trip to Tassie so we’ll definitely do it next time. Continue reading
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!
