2013 Mr Riggs Watervale Riesling

imageA collaboration of sorts between Ben Riggs and Kerri Thompson of KT wines using grapes from the Churinga Vineyard in the Clare Valley.

Pithy lemon, talc and citrus blossom. Good shape, intensity and clarity without any nail-biting acidity…in fact there’s a bit of give on the mid-palate. Grippy and dry to close. It could possibly cellar well, even it wouldn’t be the first dry Australian Riesling I would choose for that purpose. No harm in drinking it now. 91
