First Taste: Frisk Prickly Riesling

I think I've found a new favorite. This wonderful wine comes from Victoria, Australia (Victorian Alps, actually. Did you know there were Alps in Australia? Me neither) and sells for about $11 at the Teeter. See those little bubbles there? A bit spritzy. The wine is a little sweet but not too, and has a gentle limey zest to it. It reminds me of D.R. Loosen's Riesling, another favorite of mine, but is a little sweeter than that. 

They have a cool website, with very "young" sounding text. The scrolling is a little tricky. If you scroll down, you kind of have to be careful not to go too fast, and then it's a little difficult to get back to the top. The photos are very cool. 

This would be good alone as an after-school sip, or with nachos (my afternoon snack today), or with really any kind of food you might feel like having.
