2015 Vanguardist 'CVR' Clare Valley Riesling

By Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

08 April 2016.

90 PTS

Raised in barrels rather than stainless steel. Unfined. Unfiltered. 150 dozen made.

"Not your usual Clare Valley Riesling, that’s for sure, which is no bad thing either. Pie apple, whiff of chamomile tea, lime, slight yeast and briny character. It’s smooth in the mouth, almost soft and silky, with the apple flavour dominating, but kind of savoury with it too. Gentle talcum powder texture, with limey acidity and nutty flavours pushing through on the finish. Interesting wine, though likely more interesting if they really pushed the boat out and held on skins for a good long while. Though maybe that’s just me."
