2021 Claymore Wines Joshua Tree Riesling Clare Valley – Made from a blend of parcels drawn from their three Riesling sites, this wine is crafted using only free run juice and cool fermentation. It once again delivers a classic Watervale Rizza with that forward fruit lift and delicate floral elements.
There’s a lifted perfume of orange and lime blossom with hints of musk, underlined with bath minerals. Old fashioned lemon barley cordial is underlaid by pristine, steely minerality. Aromatic bath salt lift carries through to the palate complemented by a pleasant chalkiness. There is a deceptively powerful concentration to this wine – it is exceptionally fine and finishes dry, without astringency. A hallmark of the great years is that commanding fruit weight that lingers alluringly in the mouth.
The generous fruit weight of this wine would pair incredibly with white anchovy, soft cheese and crusty bread. Peasant gourmet done right!
