Pirie Clark's Botrytis Riesling

Cracka Review

Straw coloured and viscous. The aroma shows classic late-harvest Riesling characters of Seville orange and lime marmalade, overlaid with more subtle linden and citrus blossom. The palate is mouth-coating and unctuous while still retaining structure and definition from the high acidity which then finishes long and bright.

Pirie Clark's Botrytis Riesling

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
Deep golden colour here, with the gentle influence of botrytis yielding dried apricot aromas. The palate adds yellow peach flavour along smoothly textured lines, ripe yet impeccably balanced; terrific poise, concentration and length. Staggering richness, delivered with precision and focus.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Super rich, super intense, super viscous; at least the equivalent of Beerenauslese; needs to be served fully chilled. 375 ml.

Tyson Stelzer (2007 Vintage) says
Viscous, unctuous and sweet, this wine is brim-full of baked peaches, honey and spice, pulled into line by balanced acidity.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
This is one of the Australia's best sweet wines and best-kept secrets; Andrew Pirie captures intensity like few others and balances it all up superbly. Fresh stone fruits and some tropical aromas, lime citrus and gentle lime blossom florals - pristine and delicate. Incredible sugar-driven density, elixir-like honey flavour and cleansing acidity; marvellous.
