Jim Barry the Lodge Hill Dry Riesling 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and earthy on the nose, with early notes of lilacs followed by minty top notes over guava and melon aromas. This is powerful yet at the same time remains subtle. Flows across the palate; elegant and pure with lovely racy citrus flavors that hint of tropical fruits. The acidity is very strong yet superbly integrated within the rich fruit and yet this remains medium bodied in the mouth. You get a sense of dry extract and power here, but the wine never loses its poise, delivering melon, apple and papaya flavors on the long finish that ends with a salty twang of minerality and lip smacking acids. This is quite young, with excellent potential. 92pts

On the nose this award-winning Jim Barry wine is already showing a bit of petrol and stewed compote. The entry is clean as a whistle with plenty of racy acidity for further aging to 2020 at least. Spicy baked apple lingers for a satisfying, long finish. Well made and highly recommendable at this price point.
