Clare Valley Estate Defender of the Faith Riesling 2009

This wine was lightly coloured, and had a lemon citrus like aroma which was varietal, and not atypical for a Clare Valley wine.  The palate was a bit plain though with a persistent spritziness, and with time in the glass, showed a rather lemon pith like note, with evident, perhaps a little rough, acidity (particularly as the wine warmed).   This is a very inexpensive wine and best drunk cold, and is probably acceptable for the price.  77 points.
