Wine Spectator 89 - Best Value
Fresh and lively, bursting with notes of yuzu, lime sherbet and a touch of ginger soda on a juicy, slightly effervescent frame, while hints of lemon basil linger. Drink now.

Not for the faint of heart, this zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of freshly cut lime, white rose petals and a hint of fennel. With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, its a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes...or simply on its own. Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quickly - and have you reaching for another. ~winery notes

From high in the Alpine Valleys of Australia, Frisks eclectic team of winemakers believe wine is for enjoying. Period. Full stop. They make delicious wine with a unique prickle to it. If it tastes a bit like nectarines, theyll tell you this tastes a bit like nectarines. If it tastes a little like limes, or minerals? Thats what theyll say. Frisk wines are grown in decidedly different climes. Places a little cooler, steeper, and more obscure than the places one would expect winemakers go, because Frisks Brilliantly Conceived Master Plan consists of Being Where The Grapes Grow Best and making wines that reflect that.
About Frisk Winery
Made by a team of maverick winemakers hailing from the far corners of Victoria's cool-climate regions, Frisk is crafted by seasoned hands. Harvested in the chilly eve and delivered to the winery in pristine condition, prized free-run Riesling juice is fermented with canny yeasts that ensure the wine is sporting plenty of aromatic verve along with a low 8% alcohol. And the prickle? A gentle spritz produced by those clever yeasts, captured to deliver a tickle that will rouse your palate. It's downright Frisky.
Nestled into the Northern foothills of the Victorian Alps, the Alpine Valleys harbor a handful of dogged grape growers whose ancestors arrived in the 1850s after a less-than-comfortable boat trip from Italy. With lofty slopes climbing to 2000 feet, vineyards are snow clad in winter and punch through clouds to nab a slice of sunshine during summer. Four valleys are created by the Ovens, Buffalo, Buckland and Kiewa rivers, whose ancient flows dumped granite-based loam that the vines greedily nosh to produce flinty, minerally wines.
