Matchbox Wine Co Riesling 2011
Introducing a classic Clare from the Skilly Ridge. The Matchbox wine duo, Nav Singh & Louise Radman, have included this poised Riesling in their first release and I look forward to seeing their style continue to evolve.
After some skin contact and wild ferment followed by eight months on lees, there is texture to the inherent regional tautness of this wine. Spicy blossom, talc and citrus meld in a concerto for the senses. After hitting mid palate, the soft but still crisp acid zips along the entire length of the palate with a spicy flourish on the finish. It is an elegantly weighted white that is a pleasure with or without food.
