$30 from PWS. Pale lemon with a slight green tinge. Youthful intense aromas of freshly cut grass, lemon fruit and lime rind. Touch of steely minerality. Rich flavours of lemon, with blackcurrant trailing on the finish. High acidity bring a clean finish, with a hint of leafy herbs. Drink now – 2017, or keep for 10. 91/100.

Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard is a new Clare Valley winery to me. In typical Clare Valley tradition, it makes several interpretations of Riesling. But it also has a $115 Shiraz to boot!  If it’s as solid as this Riesling, then I’m very much looking forward to trying it!
