Tim Smith Eden Valley Riesling 2014
I’m often puzzled why people hate on Clare and Eden Valley Riesling. In the scheme of things they are amongst the best dry Riesling in the world. Period. Seriously cheap in world terms too.
This wine is a prime example. Sourced from vines that date back to 1922, it comes in the new contoured Eden Valley bottle (which I’m still not convinced actually does much. Might take some time).
You put this down and minutes later you can still taste it. Harcore acidity too. On sour lime length it is gold medal quality alone. It’s perhaps not even that easy a drink but gee it’s a remarkably long wine. Bloody cheap for the intensity.
