2015 Xabregas 'Mad Men of Riesling' 'Devolution' Riesling Mount Barker


SCORING SYSTEM SCORE
The Wine Advocate
"Packaged with a crown cap, the 2015 Mad Men of Riesling is an orange version of the variety, fermented on skins until halfway dry then pressed and finished in old puncheons. It's not an extreme example, but it does show some of orange wines' funky aromas and phenolics, balanced by exciting floral notions, tangerine and pear flavors and a long, silky-textured finish. It's exciting to see Australian winemakers taking these sorts of chances, doubly so when the wines come out special and not just weird."
