100% Riesling grown in predominately limestone soil. Star bright clarity with a pale greenish tinge of color. Very faint legs. Medium intensity on the nose with a predominance of citrus such as lemon, lime and also some green apple and and pear. I got plenty of minerality on the nose and the palate and a finish of wet stones along with little marzipan notes. The flavor intensity was medium, medium + acidity, medium long dry finish, medium weight body, well balanced, moderately complex and good quality overall. Not a style of wine I personally like to drink but I would recommend this for folks who like dry Rieslings. 3/5


Winemaker's Notes:

This Riesling is crafted from fruit sourced from vineyards in the Clare Valley in South Australia. These vineyards include the famous Carlsfield and Sevenhill vineyards. Carlsfield vineyard, planted in 1935, produces fruit with intense lime characters whilst the Sevenhill vineyard, planted in 1978, produces fruit with finesse and steely character. The grapes were crushed and drained with only the delicate juice being retained. This juice was then fermented cool after a settling period to retain varietal character and freshness. The resulting 2006 Annie's Lane Riesling is pale straw in color with green hues. The nose shows the classis, elegant characters of Clare Valley Riesling: dried lime rind; citrus; and stone fruit. The palate is tight and elegant, with lime flavors dominating throughout. Impressive length and natural acidity will allow for graceful aging over the next 5 to 8 years. Wine Spectator | Harvey Steiman | November 30, 2007Light and crisp, with mineral edge to the lime and floral flavors. Drink now through 2014.
