Leasingham Bin 8 KS Riesling

Cracka Review

Colour: Inspired by the Riesling styles of Mosel, this sweeter Riesling shows a cleansing balance between its lush fruit flavour, moderate alcohol and slate mineral acidity.

Nose: This delicate, crisp, medium sweet Riesling retains a fine structure and intense aromas of lime, mineral and citrus spice. A hallmark of the style is the impeccable balance between sugar, acid and alcohol that gives the wine a seamless focus. Food Suggestion: This wine is best enjoyed as a refreshing drink between meals, although may also be successfully partnered with spicy Asian seafood dishes.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Elegant, intense, direct throwback to the Vickery spatlese wines of the early 1970s; very and sweet pure lime juice offset by perfectly balanced acidity; great length and certain to age over 20 years.

We have stood in line with empty glasses for years awaiting the release of an Aussie wine in this style.We were excited last year to introduce you to Leasingham’s first Kabinett Style Riesling – but it was only available at this illustrious estate’s cellar door. Making its way to a Dan Murphy’s near you for the first time, this is a sensational style with apple and pear fruit and layers of sweet spices. We hate the term “medium sweet” because it’s neither particularly medium nor sweet. What it is, though, is extremely juicy in a crushed white grape sense. This is the perfect thing with creamy white cheeses, Thai curries involving coconut milk, tempura vegetables with sweet chilli dipping sauce, meat-based pâtés and terrines.Mmmm.
