Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $25

2017 is an excellent riesling year in Clare. This is pale coloured and nascent, with spicy, peppermint aromas, yet to develop into a citrus and floral bouquet which will come. The concentration of flavour and purity of line are impressive. Delicate but intense, refined, promising and already delicious. (Screwcap)
