Atlas 172’ Riesling 2011

Atlas is a relatively young winery based in the Clare Valley. They also make a wine or two from the Barossa but their true beautiful wines are the whites from the Clare. This wine is from the Watervale region and is light on its feet with plenty of length.

Magical! The precision and line of this wine is a delight but it is the interesting and unique flavour spectrum that is most satisfying. The flavours come across as dried lemon ring, orange blossom, crushed violets and lime pulp which slowly works their way along my tongue and fans out towards the end. The palate is medium to full body with a crunch on the back end. I would recommend drinking now or whenever you want over the next 15 years.
