Precious Little Clare Riesling 2022


The Clare Valley continues to produce truly superb wines from this brilliant vintage, especially Rieslings. Take advantage. Seriously, who knows when we will enjoy years as exciting as 2021 and 2022 again? Every cellar should be well represented with these wines and you could always start with this fine example. Bright lemon hue. We have notes of talc, spices, Myer Lemons and bath salts, with a character that reminded me of those soapy lemon detergents, but I really do mean this in a good way (another way of saying that there is a delightful fresh lemon note, I suppose). The palate has notes reminiscent of a freshly made G&T with a twist of lemon. This is slightly broader on the palate than some examples from this vintage, slightly more forward, but providing delicious drinking now and still with the balance and fine acidity to ensure a good future. Drink over the next five to six years.
