Melva by KT Riesling

Kerri Thompson’s new Rizza Reload (as she puts it) is a delightfully crafted style that dares to take Clare riesling to happy new places where succulence and wild-ferment-derived texture are more at home than searing acidity. Soft, supple, juicy generosity of baked apple, clove, lime drops and even exotic star fruit ride through a finely textured mouth feel. Well-judged residual leaves the finish succulently off-dry. $25 in quantity direct.
