Typical mass-production Riesling from Oz. VERY upfront notes of lemon and lime with an almost cloying honey-like sweetness in the finish. This Riesling could be attenuated just a touch more, the sweetness is sharp and the finish almost comes off as solventy and a bit 'hot'. It's affordable, but missing the finer, more delicate characteristics of similarly priced, high-production Aussie Rieslings; i.e. Jacob's Creek.
When I first had it, I would have rated 4, but since tasting a few times, I don't care as much for it. The white grape is not too sweet and slightly acidic. I would have this with complex pasta and seafood dishes and gamey white meat.
Not one of there best for yellow tail
Very good, not too sweet, not too dry
It's a crisp white wine, but I found it very dry and bitter for a riesling. I happen to prefer rieslings to be slightly sweeter. Yellowtail is an inexpensive brand, but in this case, you get what you pay for. Will not be purchasing this again.
External Reviews for Yellow Tail Riesling
Riesling immediately hits you with zesty lemon and lime aromas. This light, refreshing Riesling may even give you a hint of orange blossom. Luscious and lively, bursting with fresh fruit and subtle cinnamon undertones, this wine is full of flavor. - Winery
The lemon and lime aromas of this light, refreshing Riesling will leap from your glass and you may even catch the hints of orange blossom.
