Lark Hill Riesling 2014


Jasmine.  At least, that's what seems to come to mind when I taste a riesling from the Canberra region.  Since a tasting of several vintages of Canberra riesling some years ago with Tim Kirk, when Clonakilla was still only almost famous, I have find myself partial to the potential of this region with the riesling grape.  This example from Lark Hill seems more or less a vin de garde, with aromatics of lemon, yellow grapefruit and that floral edge.  The palate is framed by high acidity and its medium length finish is a firm and youthful expression of lemon and yellow grapefruit.  A good riesling for the cellar.
