Hardy’s, HRB D674, Riesling, Clare Valley, Tasmania, 2017

A vibrant light green colour. Green apple, lime sorbet, kaffir lime leaves, with flinty, minerally notes and dried green tea leaves. Pure lime with brighter citrus fruit blushes and spice. With a tangy, salty, chalky texture this radiates on many levels with the best of Clare Valley linear notes and fruitier Tasmanian grapes, leaving the mouth puckered. Cellaring this release for the next 15 years will not be a problem.
