Woodvale Skilly Clare Riesling 2020


A couple of years of age already on this premium Clare Riesling which is a very good thing. The fruit is from a single east-facing vineyard, the Woodvale vineyard, from beneath Mt Oakden in the Skilly Valley. Gleaming yellow gold. Intense aromatics here, yet there is an extra degree of elegance. The additional couple of years have allowed for some development, though the wine is still fresh and youthful. Lifted, minerally, dry herbs and citrus notes, especially limes. Good crunchy acidity through to a crisp finish of decent length. Drink now for eight to ten years, even longer in a good cellar.
