The Clare Valley offers so much good drinking especially at a young age. I’m not a fan of ages Australian Riesling at too often a petrol character emerges. I say drink while the sun shines.
Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling 2014
This wine balances some more overt characters with the normal edgy elegant flavours and it all sits on long palate length. The wine took a while to evolve with the lemon lime characters coming out before a melon and orange pith element emerges. These flavours are only medium to light bodied and it was easy to suck down the bottle in no time with a spot of thai dinner.
