Wine Colour
Golden straw with hints of green.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has a wonderful aroma that is both lifted and interesting. There are lime and subtle apricot fruit characters along with lovely developed honey toast, and spicy nuances.

Wine Palate
This wine has a generous palate yet is elegant and graceful. It has a silky mouth feel and has classic Clare Valley Riesling characters of lime and then toast with butter and honey. There is a soft, lingering acidity which gives the wine excellent length.

Cellaring Notes
This wine will drink superbly well upon release, but will age gracefully with careful cellaring to 2012 possibly longer.
