Steve Wiblin’s Erin Eyes Pride of Erin Reserve Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $35

With its pale colour and restrained young aroma, this is just a baby, but what potential! Nascent aromas of dried flowers, stone fruits and spices lead into a palate of superior concentration, great intensity, line and length. It will only improve with time in the bottle. (Screwcap)
