Closure: Stelvin

Brilliant water like core with greenish toned edges. Intense lime and lemon scents jump out of the glass trailed by some green apple, subtle oily toast like notes and wet steel. Crunchy lime and lemon fruits are tightly coiled by a laser beam of steely mineral infused acidity. Granny Smith apple, delicate kerosene and wet steel characters ensue. Taut and linear in its feel it shows great precision and finishes dry, long and steely.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
From a Clare vineyard in the Polish Hill River sub-region, owned by a couple of Adelaide heart surgeons, the guys only make this wine in top vintages. 2022 is most certainly that. This is stunning stuff. A limpid lemon, the nose is all citrus – lemons and limes. Think a handful of fresh kaffir lime leaves. This is backed by spices and wet river stones. Finely balanced, squeaky clean, fresh and with amazing length, this is a brilliant Riesling. Fine, vibrant acidity helps drive the wine. It also has such incredible length and yet the intensity of flavour is maintained for the full journey. Wonderful. This will sail through the next 15 to 20 years in good cellars. Drink 2023-2043.
