- Cellar Drink Now - 2 years (2017-2019)
- ABV 13.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
Bright yellow straw colour with a watery hue. Lightly honeyed citrus and toast scents meld into some citrus, a touch of kerosene and spice. Very rich and full in the mouth with a broad feel, the palate is filled with honeyed citrus, lime, bees wax and toast flavours which overlay lemon butter and spicy kerosene characters. Finishes dry with vibrant acidity. Long textured aftertaste of honeyed citrus, bees wax, toast, kerosene, lemon butter and spice.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
This is a delicious wine, with a golden yellow hue inflected with lime at the edges as a paean to the joys of mid-life. Quince marmalade, lime, ginger, cumquat and candied citrus of all descriptions beam from the glass, reverberating on a palate that is both layered, slightly warm vintage skinsy and yet, riding a riesling undercarriage of vibrant acidity. The ripeness of the fruit is compelling, almost suggestive of a tad of botrytis. This wonderful riesling represents the apogee of a tweak to the regional approach, having been fermented in 30hl foudre before spending 12 months on lees. This is a far more spicy, complex, richer Germanic take than the stainless steel Clare Valley norm, yet the Clare's lime splice notes remain unmistakable. Drink by 2022.
