Wine Review: This food friendly dry Riesling from Australia is pale straw colored, with aromas of lemon, lime, white florals, and delicious apples with hints of petrol, wet river rock and ginger. On the palate it is clean and dry, has a medium-minus body, bright plus acidity, and a wonderful freshness. I found flavors of lime, white peach and lemon, with some gooseberry and slightly nutty notes. The finish is long and pleasantly tart. Pair with fried oysters. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Color: At release, there is a bright, vibrant clarity to the wine. It has a very pale straw color and subtle green highlights to the edges.
Nose: The wine displays lifted fresh and vibrant aromas. Kaffir lime and lemon characters abound, followed by layers of subtle blossom and enticing floral nuances.
Palate: The wine displays intense citrus fruit characters of fresh lemon and lime along with hints of orange blossom. Through the mid-palate there is excellent fruit presence with zesty fresh lemon and lime characters. The finish is crisp. clean and lingering - hallmarks of a great Clare Valley Riesling.
