This product is currently sold out.
Smalltown Vineyards 'Rag & Bone' Riesling is a stunning classic from the ancient planted Eden Valley region - lime on the rocks! The aromas of Rag & Bone classically expresses the vineyard... it's like having a fresh lime in your hand that you crush gently over minerals... literally lime on the rocks!! The palate is bright, zingy, singing with natural acidity and really textural. It reflects the vineyard with it's fine sandy texture with really bright , white textural fruit. Just a cracking Eden Valley Riesling. Dry, textural, limey - everything you want from an Aussie Riesling. It finishes lean, fresh, linear, crisp, textural (have you noticed how textural it is yet?!), fine, brittle and clean. Just bloody lovely! Rag and Bone is well suited to seafood dishes, spicy cuisine such as Chilli prawns, green thai curry, fish and chicken laksa (with chilli, coconut, ginger and lime).

Rag & Bone Riesling 2021: “Musky, spicy perfume over lemon barley and lime. It’s tight, chalky in texture, and light and lively too, with lemon barley and kaffir lime leaf perfume, a cool ‘mineral’ feel, very discreet and highly strung, but good to drink and very refreshing with it, the powdery and chalky finish is a highlight.” Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (July 2021)
