Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2016


This is an excellent riesling from Mitchell Wines in the Clare Valley.  Lemon and lime aromatics give way to a dry, medium bodied palate with refreshing, linear and deliciously minerally acidity.  Substantial length on the finish completes the picture.  Yes.  The vines were planted in 1960, are not irrigated and tended organically.  (Alc: 13%, Region: Clare Valley, South Australia, Rating: Very Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting?  Yes, Drink: now to 2029+, Tasted: July, 2017, Source: Sample)
