Lark Hill Riesling 2011

So, I am going to say nice things again about another Lark Hill wine.  This time their 2011 riesling.  It is a departure from the dominant Australian Clare Valley/Eden Valley riesling style, in that it has an almost outlandish vibrancy of citrus flavour.  The colour of their 2011 is somewhere between water and lemon green.   On the nose, a clean and lively fragrance of apples, pears, lemon zest and green stone fruits.  On the palate, high acidity, medium length, lime, a touch of petillance and spices.  What makes this wine different and worth tasting is that combination of spices with intensely flavoured lemon and lime notes.  87 points.
