Mitchell McNichol Riesling 2010


This is a serious Clare Valley Riesling at the peak of its powers which shows the benefits of detailed winemaking. Mid golden in colour, despite its ten years of age the fruit is still relatively youthful with kaffir lime now joined by buttery, honeyed complexity. The palate is power-packed but what stands out most is supreme balance and its well integrated acidity. There is also subtle complexing elements – spice and beeswax adding interest to what is a long and textural finish. Nice wine that would be perfect with King George Whiting straight off the grill.
