2011 Xabregas Mad Men of Riesling. Mount Barker. 13%


“Inspired by ancient winemaking methods of skin maceration & minimal intervention”.

Certainly an interesting wine!

Orange and cloudy with some spritz.

Spiced, bitter almonds.

Caramel, toffeed bitter notes of Apple Tarte Tartin.

Hints of fino sherry. Dried apricots.

A very dry wine with a bite. Many layers to this.

Different. Unsure if I “get” this style of wine.

Tasted 13th November 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
