2011 Yalumba Christobel's Eden Valley Riesling

Wine of the Day: 2011 Yalumba Christobel's Eden Valley Riesling

If there were ever a wine to win the title of Most Beloved Wine at Sugar HQ, it'd have to be Yalumba's 2011 Christobel's Eden Valley Riesling, because it emptied before all taste-test participants were able to try it. The striking botanical illustrations on the label, which feature flowers in bold coral and lavender, attracted the PopSugar flock at first sight. Anxious wine tasters loved the immediate gratification of the twist top and were excited by the thought of bringing this beauty along to picnics or parks.

The bottle's floral, nectar-like scent resembles German Rieslings, but upon first sip, the Australian wine startled us with its light body, dry quality, and smooth finish. It remarkably had the essence of nectarine and honey without any of the sugary sweetness that is traditionally associated with the varietal. Everyone agreed it was a friendly, day-drinking wine, which probably explains why it was guzzled so quickly, and for $12, I'm sure our editors will be doing the same thing again. I think we've found our new Summer weekend wine — what's yours?
