Tim Adams Clare Valley Riesling 2016
It’s amazing to think that white wine of this calibre still sells for just $22/bottle. What a time to be alive.
This is classic Clare Riesling too. Intense lime juice on the nose backed by a, tangy, but not hard, limey palate that is surprisingly full given the low alcohol. Lots of mid-palate flesh. Curiously there is a hole in the back end, a flat spot before the citrus acidity kicks in, but that could just be a product of serious youth.
Another solid release. More than solid, this is just archetypal Clare Riesling.
Best drinking: 2016-2030. 17.7/20, 92/100. 11%, $22. Would I buy it? For $22 this is a steal, so yes.
