2015 Wakefield St. Andrews Riesling, Clare Valley, Australia

In the glass, the wine is a very pale straw color with glints of green. The aromatics burst from the glass, an enticing mixture of perfumed pine needle and sap, lemon oil, orange blossoms, and limestone minerality. With the first sip, a puckering acidity, citrus oil, and slatey mouthfeel play off the steely backbone that promises this wine will age effortlessly for another 15 years or more. This is a benchmark bottling, demonstrating the aromatic profile and age-worthy structure that has beguiled wine connoisseurs around the world.
