Annie's Lane Riesling Clare Valley 2010
Annie Wayman was a legend in the Clare Valley. She could always be relied upon to bring along sandwiches and a warm drink to harvesters and pruners in the vineyard at the turn of the 20th century. One evening, Annie's horse and cart got bogged in a lane adjacent to one of the valley's best vineyards. Thus, Annie's Lane was born.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
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
I have never been a big fan of Riesling, but Annie's Lane changed my mind. Slight mineral flavors and a brightness from sniff to sip. Perfect for a summer evening on the patio.
