(2012) The grape that made the Clare famous in the UK, not just on quality, but as the first wine region in the world to unilaterally switch to screwcap for all Riesling wines back in the '90s. This is a typically bone-dry example, which exhibits masses of lime and lemon fruit on the nose, as well as a hint of that beeswaxy mineral note. On the palate it really is dry, and has a mountain stream clarity. It perhaps lacks a little of the weight and intensity I'd like to see to elevate it to gold standard, but there's no denying the invigorating and delicious grapefruity zest of this wine.
