Clonakilla Riesling 2018

WINE FRONT 94 POINTS! 

 

"Beautiful wine of poise, assertive flavour and great velocity across the palate. Scents of lime cordial, talc, jasmine floral characters. A pretty, gently sweet start. Flavours coil around lime juice and brisk, grape-fruity acidity. Chalky-mineral characters chime in. Arrow-thrust to infinity. It’s another cracker." - Mike Bennie, Winefront

 

"To everything there is a season. And for Clonakilla riesling, the warm, dry 2018 season produced a riper, richer wine than in the cooler 2017 vintage. Despite the heat, grapes held excellent acid." - Tim Kirk, Clonakilla winemaker

 

"The tangy acidity balances a delicious riesling with rich, citrus-like varietal flavour in the pure, delicate Clonakilla style. It’s impressive now as a vibrant, fruity young wine. But it’ll change in pleasing ways over the next decade – best experienced by cellaring a case and enjoying a bottle every year or two, potentially over decades." Chris Shanahan
