Gotham 2008 Clare Valley Riesling

It's made by Neil Pike and the overwhelming response was WOW! I've been very well behaved in recent times resisting the urge to fill the cellar door with stacks of my favourite white variety but this one couldn't be ignored. This opens quite shyly with a reserved delicacy and then takes off. It combines a crisp acidic dryness with an intensity of fruit that out blancs the sauvignons. As much as I enjoy sauv blancs it's rieslings ike this that really excite me with their character and versatility. A superb wine that delivers well into the $20+ territory.

Our Price: $15 per bottle by the doz
