Thorn-Clarke Sandpiper Riesling, Eden Valley 2015 $19
Dried flower and straw aromas mingle with a touch of spice; the wine is very intense and yet also delicate in the mouth, with refined texture and a long persistence. The track-record shows it will also age well. Good value. (12 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
