McGuigan The Shortlist Riesling 2019

If you love Riesling this one is an absolute classic, Hallidays said it was “Utterly Beguiling” and rated it a 96/100, The 2019 Shortlist Riesling by McGuigan Wines is fresh, crisp and well balanced.

The palate of this wine delivers intense citrus notes of lemon and lime held together with a persistent acid line ensuring great ageing ability.  The wine is attractive on the nose with lifted floral notes of jasmine and lemon sherbet.

The Eden Valley Riesling is perfectly matched to shellfish, freshly shucked oysters and delicate seafood, balancing with its crisp acidity.

While this tastes fantastic right now, it is also an excellent wine to cellar and would still be in peak form (or more likely even better with some age (Cellar up to 2031)

Alcohol: 12.1%


Chocolate Pairing Suggestions

Cuvee Bianco 35% White Chocolate 70g

A white chocolate intended to please even the fiercest dark chocolate connoisseur.

Single origin Ecuadorian cocoa butter married to pure Australian milk and a vanilla bean extraordinaire…

It’s the Tongan vanilla that lends it an ever so slight nuttiness and combined with the nuances of cocoa butter it just sings sparkling wine!

Add a 120 hour conching process and et voila - a white chocolate experience like no other!

Pairs well with Semillon, Sparkling, Moscato, Rose, Botrytis

Cuvee Soleo 42% Milk Chocolate 70g

Soleo is as much of a story as it is a chocolate.

It begins with carefully selected cocoa from the Solomon Islands, roasted and conched meticulously under the watchful eyes of our chocolate makers.

It’s the 168hrs of conching that takes this chocolate to an unparalleled level of smoothness.

Hints of brioche, cinnamon and lightly toasted oak making it appear somewhat Christmassy…

Pairs well with: Semillon, Chardonnay, Moscato, Rose, Botrytis, Port, Tawny
