Polished riesling

Wilson Vineyard DJW Polish Hill River Riesling 2016, Clare Valley, AUD $24

With a medium to full yellow hue, this is an up-front, early accessible riesling with toast and lemon citrus aromas. The palate is relatively rich for the Polish sub-region, and the concentration and drive set it apart from its competitors. The finish is long and dry but soft. (Screwcap)
