2008 Heath Wines Southern Sisters Res Riesling
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewA perfect example of a quite simple Clare Valley Riesling with a few extra years of aging under its belt, this toasty, soft and rather generous white wine has rather a lot of flavour in a quite open and toasty style. Simple yet quite generous and yet still crisp, its quite an easy drink.
Winemaker's NoteStraw colour with green tints the 2008 Riesling vintage was outstanding for intense flavours and natural acidity. Southern Sisters Reserve Riesling is a delicate wine with intense regional and varietal characters. The nose is rich with fresh limes and citrus characters. Powerful orange blossom and hints of fennel and sweet spice. The palate is lively with beautiful flavour focus and great length, balanced by crunchy natural acidity.
This style will age beautifully producing complex honey toast aromas and flavours.
