Petaluma Riesling Hanlin Hill 2008


Classic Clare Valley Riesling. A big hit of lime initially surfing on a wave of cut throat acidity but this quickly settles down to a more gentle minerally wine with grapefruit and a sinew of kerosene. This is delicious to drink now but the depth of flavour, zesty acidity and generous length suggest that another 5 years in the cellar would be well rewarded. 89/100
