I purchase Clonakilla Riesling most years along with their stellar Shiraz Viognier, their Syrah and sometimes their Viognier. Proven to age slowly this Riesling had white florals and Talc on the nose with a herbal note and no Kerosene. Honey and Lime on the palate with reduced acidity compared to its youth. A very good aged Riesling reaching its maturity and good QPR. Wines like this prove the worth of having a good cellar. See many previous notes from older vintages. — a year ago
This is so incredibly delicious and interesting! Layers of flavors going on in this glass! I could spend an hour deciphering this wine! Refer to @Severn Goodwin and @Lyle Fass notes on this; they nailed this spot on! 👍 Super long finish like my tongue is stuck on the roof of my palate! 😁 This is my first experience with this producer...simply elegant! 🍒🍓🥝 — a year ago
