Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge.

Wine Bouquet
The wine displays zesty lemon and lime aromas along with faint orange blossom and talc.

Wine Palate
This particular Clare Riesling is still tight and restrained with a linear focus to the palate and purity of fruit flavours. There are lashings of fresh lemon/lime juice characters up front and a slate-like minerality across the mid-palate. It is backed up by a persistent and refreshing lime acid finish.

Cellaring Notes
Under ideal conditions this wine should cellar well to 2029, possibly longer.

    Illawarra Mercury, October 2013

    The pinnacle of WakefieldÆ riesling portfolio. Aromatic and elegant, crunchy green apple, lemon and lime, tangy acidity and a crisp, clean finish. Stick a few bottles in the cellar because the best years are yet to come with this wonderful white.

    St. Andrews Riesling 2013

    Des Houghton, Courier Mail, November 2013

    The 2013 St Andrews riesling ($40) is a highbrow offering. It's a tight and restrained wine with lemon and lime aromas along with faint orange blossom. A slate - like minerality across the mid - palate is backed up by a persistent and refreshing lime acid finish.

    Selector Magazine, February 2014

    The St Andrews range is only released in the finest vintages and while 2013 started off looking ordinary, it blossomed into a stellar year. Bright lemon and lime aromas lift from the glass, while the palate exhibits a very tight lemony fruit core with cruchy acidity, granny smith apple freshness and hints of sherbert, fruit tingles, lemon sorbet and sea spray.

    Wine & Spirits Magazine, February 2014

    Imported New Releases
    Springtime scent of apple blossoms introduces this powerful young wine. The malic acidity (think tart apples) tightens around lime and pineapple flavours, while the underlying intensity is in the fragrance. This should begin to show its best six to eight years from the vintage

    Winestate, April 2014

    A sound, well-made wine that's fresh, light and flinty, with a dash of spice and showing slight spritzig characters with some zippy acidity.

    Glen Frederiksen, Winelines Online, April 2014

    A lightly effervescent wine possessing prickly acidity and slate-like minerality. Peach and tangerine aromas dominate the nose, and a floral quality (rosewater) emerges in the mouth after mid-palate, joined by a hint of varietal petroleum. Because of its strong thread of acidity, this wine is well suited for accompanying fresh shellfish.
