Riesling Uovo, Cherubino 2022

Tasting Notes

The 2022 Uovo Riesling is from Frankland River was made in a clay cement tankā€”an egg, hence, "uovo" in the name. The aromas utter whispers of cheesecloth, beeswax, Geraldton Wax flower, crushed pistachio, cold buttered toast, leafy herbs and green caper brine. It's softer (not hard) than the Cherubino Rieslings. The texture here is most attractive, alluring even. I love the way it plays out in the mouth through the finish. It is chalky and briney and super pretty. Excellent. 11.5% alcohol sealed under screw cap. 2023-2037.

Given its name by the concrete egg in which the wine is fermented, the Uovo Riesling from Cherubino comes in at a modest 11.6% alcohol with 2g/l residual sugar - it feels dry with just a touch of body lent by the sugar. Watery lemon-green in colour, the nose is quintessential dry Riesling, offering lime and lemon, white flowers and a hint of citrusy herbs. The palate is tense and acid-driven, with waves of steely freshness forming the structure. Ample citrus fruit wraps around the piercing acidity, giving zesty, floral and herbal tones in turn. Fine-boned but very long, this is a wine to enjoy now, or over the next decade. Bottled under screwcap.
