Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2016

I had two looks at the 2015 release of this wine. No such need here.

Mitchell, Watervale, Riesling, Clare Valley, 2016

Perfumed, yet masculine nose: lime, lemon leaf with a distinct “balsa wood,” white quartz and chalky austerity/dryness. Textural, linear but not lean. This moves slowly through the riesling spectrum: light citrus, rocky minerality, soft talc/chalk texture and then finishing beautifully dry. Understated in youth and destined for longevity.

RRP: $24
Alc: 13%
