Wine suggestions from Winsor Dobbin
Mitchell 2005 Watervale Riesling – The Clare Valley is unmatched when it comes to quality dry rieslings at affordable prices and husband and wife team Andrew and Jane Mitchell produce one of the very best, vintage after vintage. This is a wonderfully minerally/slatey wine, bone dry with zesty lemon and lime flavours to the forefront with lovely acid on the finish. A wonderfully palate-refreshing partner for a Christmas seafood platter or barbecued prawns. About $20, but shop around.
