Wine Review: This dry-styled Riesling from the Clare Valley in Australia is very good. It has an interesting bouquet of lime, hibiscus, cinnamon, wet stone and white pepper. I found it to be straw colored and light bodied with some dry and refreshing acidity. It displays flavors of green apple, lime, honey and light minerality. I enjoyed its flavorful long finish which added some hints of peach pit. We were overlooking Cape Cod bay when we enjoyed this tasty Riesling. It paired very well with our Wellfleet oysters with a squeeze of lemon drizzled on top. - Mark
Winemaker Notes: Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in color with youthful green tints. Full blown aromas of limes, citrus rind and lemon curd flood the nose. The palate is crisp and lively with mouth-filling flavors of fresh lime juice, lemons, orange blossom and hints of stone fruit. Racy acidity is perfectly balanced with a touch of retained grape sugar. The core of natural acidity will provide terrific balance, great palate length and satisfaction for the next 12-15 years with proper cellaring.
