GOLD MEDAL, TEXSOM 2023 WINE COMPETITION The Clare Valley is the spiritual home of Riesling in Australia. It's insane diurnal swing ripens fruit yet allows it to retain its rapier-like acidity which starbursts on your palate in a mineral explosion. Some of the finest examples of the varietal hail from this region.
From the same producer as Lots 340 Clare Valley Cabernet and 342 Clare Valley GTM, this Clare Valley Riesling is an absolute classic from a master of the varietal. Good luck finding this anywhere else in the USA, this wine is gobbled up as a perennial favorite by its core Aussie audience. However, we used our purchasing leverage to get an allocation. As such, I paid more for this wine than the reds but its worth it..
A mouthwatering masterpiece, this electric, bone-dry Riesling is lightning in a bottle!
"[this] Riesling has been one of my favourite Aussie whites for years now." Oz Clarke
Lot 345 is the same wine as the standard bottling from this producer - it's an outstanding wine from a truly great vintage. It has already been scored 95-points from Wine Pilot under the producers label
"95 points. Always one of the exemplary Rieslings from this classic region, this vintage is one of their best. It offers a glorious Clare Valley nose, perfumed with limes, spices, grapefruit and florals, notably jasmine. Bright, even slightly grippy acidity, with a minerally, chalky texture. Very long and focused. This is superb. Depending on whether you love your Rieslings young and fresh or developed and complex, this is available for drinking any time over the next twenty years. More compelling evidence of how good the 2022 vintage is."Ken Gargett (Winepilot)
A crisp, dry, zingy, intensely flavoured Riesling that will make you sit up and take notice! Aromas and flavours of lemons, limes and candied grapefruit that are fused together by a laser-like beam of acidity that carries right through to the long finish.
It’s drinking beautifully right now, brilliant on its own or as an accompaniment to seafood, salads or poultry dishes.
