Your $10 Recession Wine of the Week: Banrock Station Riesling 2007
It's been a while since I've done one of these. Sorry! Sometime this Recession-era free-lancer is in such a state that even a $10 bottle of wine seems an extravagance.
But here's a value—and guess what! It's a riesling! What a surprise. The Banrock Station 2007 is from Southeast Australia. Don't expect a lot of depth here. It's lime and lemon and citrus, and lime and lemon and citrus—on the nose and on the palate. Maybe a light stoniness. But it's brisk and its light and has good acidity and it's worth of the $9 it will take to purchase it.
