Wine Of The Week AU

oleary-walker-watervale-riesling-2016O’Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2016, Clare Valley, AUD $20

O’Leary Walker rieslings are consistently good value. With a light to medium yellow hue, this has aromas of lemon pith, dried herbs and dried flowers. The palate is delicate and intense, intensely flavoured and structured with driving acidity giving tang and focus. A piercing wine with a bright future. (Screwcap)
