2012 ‘Traditionale’ Riesling
Brilliant pale green colour
Fresh and bright displaying layers of lemon/lime zest, floral notes and subtle nuances of mineral and wet slate.
Crisp, fresh and dry and is loaded with all the lemon/lime/slate mentioned above. These are all seamlessly wound around a spine of bright, mineral acidity providing length and drive.
This is a terrific “Traditionale” Riesling from what has been an excellent vintage in Clare. As always it will make a lovely drink as a fresh, young white wine, but will easily improve for 10+ years in the bottle for those who like bottle aged Riesling. Still the world’s best Oyster wine.
