2004 Mr Tipple Clare Valley Aged Release Riesling
How good is aged Riesling? This little number still shows plenty of bright limey fruit to which bottle age has added some buttered toast complexity and still has plenty of youthful bite - Riesling at the peak of its powers.
A beautiful pale gold colour, Mr Tipple's Aged Release Riesling, at nine years of age shows lovely rich aromas of lime, apple and quince. On the palate the wine has similarly intensified, with complex flavours dominated by citrus. A wine to contemplate on its own, but also remarkably versatile with food.
