Claymore Wines, Superstition, Reserve Riesling, Clare Valley, 2017

Delicate and elegant perfume: Underpinned with a die-cast steely note, there’s a Victorian boudoir of soft talc powders, fruits of pears and limes, all garnished with blossoms and kaffir lime leaf. A powerful, yet fine and finely crafted expression of riesling, the fruit flavours run through the lime spectrum with tart apple and a scream of acidity. It moves through layers of texture and finishes with exquisite length.
