Gaelic Cemetary Vineyards Clare Valley
2019 Premium Riesling
97/100pts James Halliday
4 trophies, 3 in riesling categories, and Best Wine of Show at the Clare Valley Wine Show ’15. This starts where its gold medal-winning sibling finishes; it is awesome in the way it exerts its power, taking hold of the palate without any fuss, then tightening and lengthening its grip each time it is retasted. The rainbow of citrus fruits pays scant attention to the slatey acidity that is the bedrock of its long-term development. Screwcap. 12.5% alc. 97/100 points."James Halliday, The Wine Companion
Pale green in appearance with typical Clare Valley Riesling characters of lemon, lime and grapefruit plus some subtle bath powder notes on display as well. The palate is fresh, crisp and dry with a touch of talc; the concentrated flavours and balanced acidity in harmony with the long, textural finish. Try with Greek style chargrilled octopus.
