White Florals, Talc, Herbs, note of Kerosene. On the palate some white stone fruit, great structure with Medium minus acid. Finishes semi dry and soft. Excellent Clare Valley Riesling.

Just hanging in there. Just.
Very sure no one dreamt of drinking this 16 years later when it was made.

Outstanding mature Clare Valley riesling; Bin 7; razor sharp softened acidity of limes, lime-flavoured fruit; emerald-green colour just fab; 12.5%; AUD 110 (UK source); Hardys pointed out the screw cap which preserved it so well; then discontinued when Constellation lost its way; 2005 to 2008 not made; now re-made by Accolade; 2013 sells for less than the 2004; first made 1967.

Who says affordable wine can't age? This is absurdly good right now.

So well balanced, full on the palate, a little residual sugar, great value

Petroleum, persika, mogna gula päron! Grymt bra syra för att vara 5 år gammal! Några år till så...

16. A bit disappointing, given the reviews. Lean. But clean, good with fish. Maybe need time.

A much awarded Riesling on the Australian Show Circuit. Starting to develop more mature characters but still Limey chalky mineral notes. Pure as the driven snow with good acidity which will propel it for another 10 years plus.
