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 TaylorsÆ 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.
