Buy of the Week AU

Tim Adams Skilly Ridge Riesling 2017, Clare Valley, AUD $29 (cellar door)

The bouquet is hauntingly beautiful, evoking lifted aromas of fresh flowers, talc and citrus blossoms. It’s similarly intense and captivating in the mouth, where it’s crisp and penetrating, bursting with vitality. The alcohol is low, which is very much the Adams house style. (Screw-cap)
