Clonakilla Riesling 2007

Clonakilla's 2007 riesling is good, rather than very good.  An aroma of lemon, stones and minerals.  A palate with pronounced acidity, citrus flavours and a stoney character.  Length was shortish.  This is a refreshing wine, enjoyable even, but Australia is blessed with quality riesling at cheaper prices than this.  84 points.

Abv: 12.5%
Price: around $25
