The Clare Valley Riesling highlights just keep coming. This Pikes The Merle Reserve 2023 is brilliant! It possesses a tang that just grabs you and holds you to ransom. Come at me!
Such a classy release, riverstone and minerally vibes are the beating heart. Plentiful limes and lime pith consume the mouth and pretty white flowers and fabulous bath powder scents diffuse a delightful perfume. A gravitating tension tugs for your attention with a little steely presence for good measure. The acid just sizzles. Oh, this is a bit awesome!
Drink now but it will age very nicely indeed.
