Claymore Wines The Joshua Riesling 2012

Riesling is all about vineyard. I don't think there is another white wine variety that is so specific regarding expressing the site. If the site is good, them this variety shines. The Clare Valley is one of the best areas for this variety in Australia and shows well upon release. The Eden Valley isn't as expressive as the Clare so if you are wanting an easy drinking white wine to get you through the summer months look towards Clare.

This wine is open and ready to please with flavours of lemon and lime all encased in spring blossom. The medium bodied palate is zippy and zesty with enough flavour to smother the acidity. Freshness is an understatement and I would be drinking this out with friends when the weather warms up.
