Food Pairings for Clare Hill Riesling Clare Valley
In my quest for a white wine that I truly love, this came out as a winner!! Even D loved it (so that means we can definitely buy it again!). Light and refreshing - it wasn't overly sweet like many rieslings. It was slightly sweet up front, which quickly opened into a nice acidity, refreshing mouthfeel, and crisp finish. Had this with a mid-Eastern meal (thanks to David Tanis). It was awesome on its own, and great with the meal (tabouleh, tomato salad with toasted coriander and olives, pita with za'atar, lamb chops). From Bottle: ...this wine displays all the vibrancy and fresh citrus characters that we have come to expect from our classic dry riesling style. It makes the perfect accompaniment marriage with a plate of freshly opened oysters and other seafood... From Laithwaites (http://www.laithwaites.co.uk/Still_White_Wine/Clare_Hills_Riesling/prod506900): Clare Hills Riesling is made by Neil Pike - who has worked hard to make sure his white wines are some of the best around. This Riesling has the signature elegance and distinctive flavour of the Polish Hill River: the hilly terrain here makes it the best land for Riesling in Australia. From WineAlign (http://www.winealign.com/wines/17888-Clare-Hills-Riesling-2009): Made by Neil Pike of Pike and Joyce Wines, this Riesling is made from premium grapes, grown amongst the rolling hills of South Australia’s Clare Valley. Clare Riesling has become something of an Australian classic, and this one displays all the vibrancy you would expect from a classic dry Riesling. The cool climate of the Clare Valley delivers a wine with the typically elegant character of the region.
