Personally, I cannot get enough of the wonderful Clare Valley Rieslings from the brilliant 2021 vintage. As a broad generalisation, buying as much of this vintage from producers across the region is a no-brainer. And this one should be high on the list. Made from only free-run juice from selected sites, the winemaking follows the path of crushing, de-juicing and clarification, then fermentation over a two week period at just 12-14°C before cold stabilisation with no acid addition.
The colour is yellow/green with glints of gold. This is a powerful aromatic wine, with some tropical touches; passionfruit, limes, florals and more. Good acidity which travels right through the impressive length. A seamless wine with focus and persistence. While the nose on this wine is impressive, the palate ratchets things up a notch, especially with the florals. This has a good decade ahead of it and is excellent value.
