Buy of the Week AU

Naked Run The First Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $22

Made by Steve Baraglia, winemaker at Pike’s, this is a pale-coloured mineral, dried herb and lemon scented riesling with a light, crisp, lively palate. It’s a fine, reserved style of riesling that really refreshes. And it will age superbly. (Screwcap)
