Annie’s Lane Quelltaler Riesling 2016

Owned by super wine company Treasury Wine Estates, that doesn’t mean it’s a corporate silhouette. Sourced from the 1935 planted Carsfield Vineyard in Watervale, heart of the Clare Valley. Winemaker is Alex MacKenzie.

Annie’s Lane, Quelltaler, Riesling, Watervale, 2016

Evocative nose: wet slate, kaffir lime leaf and green tea. The palate holds the tension exquisitely. Precise and delicate with perfumed citrus blossom florals, soft citrus (lime/lemon) flavours. Joyfully crisp acidity balancing the soft talc texture. Wonderful now with 20 years plus ahead.

RRP: $26.99
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 18/20
