Aged beauty

O’Leary Walker Drs’ Cut Reserve Riesling 2013, Clare Valley, AUD $35

At four years of age, this wine is showing beautiful aged characters, with the nose distinctly nutty and complex. There is lovely freshness and acid-drive on the palate with delicate sweet lime notes and gentle smokiness. It’s incredible to think you can buy an aged release this good for only AUD $35. A worthy addition to any cellar.

Perfect drinking now though will continue to mature and develop with age. (Screwcap)
