February 16 Ministry Of Clouds Clare Valley Riesling 2016
The quite stunning, and in my eyes, one of the best value – and simply best, Rieslings I’ve seen come out of the Clare Valley – Ministry Of Clouds Clare Valley Riesling 2016. Big call you say? Well yes, it is a big call but what separates this Riesling from other Clare Rieslings is that it is not all about acid and citrus pith. This wine has a beautiful floral note on the nose that lingers and builds in to lovely bitter kumquat aromas. Lovely. The palette opens up with chalky minerality which blooms in to more delish kumquat that then finishes with a moorish bitter melon taste. Just super yum .
Drink with shallow-fried white bait and always $30
