Showing a light straw colour, this Clare Valley Riesling gives off lifted fragrances of balm, lemon blossom and white florals from the nose. The intense and attractive palate is full of freshly squeezed lemon juice, orange blossom honey, ‘Bickfords’ lime cordial and tangerine peel flavours that fuse together with undertones of spicy stem ginger, kerosene and river stone. Crisp and minerally acidity, drying phenolics and textural elements balance the rich fruit flavours to provide a lingering and zesty grapefruit climax. Sushi, yum cha, whole baked snapper and pan-fried fish are great food matches with this refreshing white wine. Made by SHelley Torresan and Peter Fraser, winemaker at Yangarra and James Halliday's Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year 2016.

James Halliday's Wine Companion

Left on lees and stirred periodically over four-moths following a cool fermentation, this is Clare to a T. A bit softer and textural than most, its chief virtue. Spa salts, lemon oil and citrus zest, careening along talcy acid rails, bright and juicy. This is light to mid-weighted, punchy and yet far from shrill or hard. A nice drink.
