Taylors "St Andrews" Clare Valley Riesling 2007

A great example of an aged Riesling, and although it has only been five years, the characteristics demonstrated here tick all the boxes.

A concentrated nose of lemon curd and kerosene, even some baked apple. The palate is lush. Lemony and intense, even a snip of spice. The acid has softened considerably. Generosity plus on the palate wrapping up with a super length which lingers for what seems an eternity. Still plenty of life left in it and it can rest easy in a dark place for at least another five years.

Lick those lips!
