Riesling 2009


Region: Clare Valley
Other Vintages:


Hedonistic and tightly focussed, this exceptionally balanced wine displays lemon, lime and a seamless spine of natural acidity leading to a finish of extraordinary length.

Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge.

Wine Bouquet
This is a tight, restrained yet quite potent Riesling with zesty lime and the smell of fresh citrus. Faint hints of tropical fruit are evident. At release, the aroma is still quite closed like a tightly knitted ball however I feel it will open graciously with time.

Wine Palate
The palate is quite powerful and rich which bodes well for its future, although again, at release it is still tight and restrained yet with a substantial presence across the palate. Superior examples of Clare Riesling often have a generous mid palate and this does which is backed up by a persistent and steely finish.

Cellaring Notes
Evolving well at release yet should cellar well to 2019 possibly longer.
