Rieslingfreak No.3 2010, Clare Valley, SA

$25 direct from John Hughes.Recommended by Chris Ringland (via fb).

Clear pale lemon colour with fine legs. A blast of clean, intense and youthful aromas of cold lime talc, crushed limestone slate rock, kaffir lime leaf and rind, hint of sesame seed in the back. Dry, full-bodied wine with 12% alc and an initial rich, ripe lime citrus then lemon pith and sugars kick in. An easy long finish as the fruity flavours fade out. Pure riesling. Drink now – 2025+. 94/100.
