Grapefruit, citrus and floral aromas. For a young Clare Riesling it has a slightly generous palate that has touches of tropical fruits and maybe a dash of residual sugar that adds to the length and weight of the palate. It still retains a vibrant acid driven freshness and remains light bodied. Good varietal expression and well-priced for the quality.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
