Pikes'The Merle' Reserve Riesling 2017

Regular price $45.00 Sale

Typically restrained for a young 'Merle' displaying pristine aromas of lime, lemon and stone fruits along with a hint of wet slate and talc. The palate again restrained / subtle with the citrus characters the main drivers, but once the acid kicks in the whole thing livens up and the textural / talc elements of the palate are apparent. It displays great length of flavour and a pureness that typifies this vineyard.

In summary another terrific vintage that will not harm its reputation as one Clare’s finest Riesling examples. For those who like their Rieslings crisp and fresh with a little texture it will appeal immediately, but for those who like complex lemon butter and toastiness of bottle aged Clare Valley Riesling you can cellar it for 8-15 years. 95 points
