2016 Vanguardist 'CVR' Riesling reviewed by The Wine Front

2016 Vanguardist 'CVR' Riesling reviewed by The Wine Front

By Gary Walsh 

17 August 2017

90 PTS

"Hand-picked from a NE ridge of the Clare Valley with 40% spending six weeks on skins, the balance whole bunch basket pressed to old oak. No fining. No filtration. As an aside, I scored this wine 94 points last year in a big blind tasting of 2016 Clare Valley Riesling.

Chamomile and honey, perhaps some ginger, more to apple than citrus, some aniseed. Medium weight, a slight cider vinegar tang, but not untoward, a dusting of peppery tannin, turning more to lime and lemon as it closes, fairly softly. Lots of interest, and a nice change of pace from the same old."
