Charming Watervale

Mount Horrocks Watervale Riesling 2016, Clare Valley, AUD $34

This wine has excellent depth and presence, having charm from the very start. Focused lime aromas and an excellent palate, wildly expressive and balanced. The acidity is perfectly woven into the fabric of the wine. One of the great Clare rieslings: gently assertive, graceful and flavoursome. Consistently excellent and highly satisfying. (Screwcap)
