Ravishing rizza

Grosset Springvale Riesling 2016, Clare Valley, AUD $40

The colour is light, bright straw-yellow and the bouquet presents a subtle array of dried flowers and dried herbs. The palate is intense and focused, clean and alive, with lime leaf and lemon verbena nuances. It’s fine and dry, with a very long aftertaste. (Screwcap)
