Natalie's Score: 93/100

Laser focused pure fruit zings across the senses and palate with this vibrant Australian Riesling. Come-alive cool-climate Riesling with crisp, silver lines of refreshment from start to finish. Love it! Petrol, lemon blossom, lime zest, mineral depth. Mouth-watering and dry. Supreme! Try it with creamy cheeses. Lots of acidity and minerality in this crisp white wine. Pair with spinach quiche and vegetarian dishes.

Riesling food pairings: game birds, pork, cheese, seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Clare Valley, South Australia is Riesling country with its cooler climate. The late Jim Barry purchased The Lodge Hill vineyard in 1977 knowing that it would "produce some of the best Riesling in Clare." The vineyards are the highest in the valley at 480 metres, perfect for producing Riesling. The nose on the 2016 Riesling is lemon curd and ginger cake. On the palate the wine is lime-citrus zesty and with a long mineral finish and. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
