Thorn-Clarke ‘Eden Trail’ Eden Valley Riesling 2018

Riesling from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 21-Oct-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and beautifully fragrant with an aromatic array of white and yellow florals with a core of lime fruit, subtly entwined with mouthwatering mineral nuances, and refreshing hints of herb elements. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a taut and concentrated, penetrating core of finely packed flavours of lime fruit melded with white and yellow florals and thirst-quenching minerals, The acidity is very fine, showing low pH , but with a near-electric crispness. The fruit flows with excellent linearity and drive, carrying long and sustained mouthwatering finish of citrus fruits and florals. This is a taut, concentrated and penetrating dry Riesling with an array of aromatics on a very fine-textured, thirst-quenching palate. Serve with seafood and Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. ‘Mount Crawford’ fruit from the Eden Valley, cool-fermented to 11.5% alc. and 0.31 g/L RS, TA 7.8g/L and pH 2.82. 19.0-/20 Oct 2018 RRP AU$26.00
