Wine of the Week AU

Grosset Alea Riesling 2018, Clare Valley, AUD $37.50

A concentrated, powerful riesling with a hardly-noticeable trace of sweetness, this is rich and forceful with floral, herbal, lemon and lime aromas coupled with bakery-like yeast overtones. The finish is clean and dry and very long. An impressive wine with a big future. (Screwcap)
