Pure Clare Riesling 2021
A dozen buy for ten bucks a bottle? Surely that is a misprint. A lot of wineries must be hiding in shame and embarrassment at the prices they charge when they see value like this. Clare Riesling is not just one of Australia’s great wine styles but the Clare Valley is also one of the best districts for Riesling anywhere in the world. From the Watervale sub-region, this is pale yellow and seemingly on the verge of deepening. Lovely florals here, with underlying steel notes. Good citrus and floral characters. This is, put simply, an ideal example of a Watervale/Clare Riesling. A hint of fruit sweetness, but it works well and the finish lingers nicely so at least three to six years ahead of it.
