KARTHAUSER: SOUTH-EAST FACING SLOP. RED WEATHERED ROCK. THE RIESLING: MULTILAYERED AND EXPRESSIVE
DR MARTIN TESCH
A very light yellow in colour (Its quite yellow compared to the greener young Australian Rieslings), with visible CO2 bubbles. The nose shows lime, slate, more lime & earth. Its a pure, expressive nose of power and beauty. The palate has lemon, lemonade, aspirin & intense lime juice, with acidity that is bracingly citrussy and quite Clare like in its searing dryness. As it warms up, this shows more musk and more pine lime, fruit-meets-acidity goodness.
