Knappstein Riesling 2015

I ducked into the bottlo to find something to wash down the Malaysian we were having at the restaurant next door. Admittedly the range wasn't extensive but I couldn't pass this up when I saw it in the fridge - sheer drinking pleasure.

Lots of lemons and limes plus lime zest. The back label suggests a whiff of bath salts which hits the mark. White florals are in the mix too. A pleasure to drink due to the freshness delivered. Acidity is crisp and cleansing. Expected Clare Valley minerality saunters through with chalky feels on the palate, but that rush of citrus keeps rolling on. Fantastic Riesling.

Drink now while fresh but will cellar for the long term if desired.

Very good.
