Jim Barry 2011 Watervale Riesling

One of the stars of a recent riesling tasting we conducted.
Here are their tasting notes with which I totally concur apart from the ginger reference. I must have missed someting there

"This Jim Barry Riesling is classic Watervale—lemons, limes and a wonderfully clean, crisp finish. Just like a deliciously fresh party in your mouth. Enjoy!
Sight: Hay like appearance with green hues
Smell: Aromas on ginger, spicey preserved lemon and fresh lime juice

Taste: Tight, aromatic and textural with a spine of natural grape acidity and a zesty, clean finish

Time: A wine created to be enjoyed upon release but also having the character to be cellared into the next decade to increase the complexity already apparent."

Our Price: $14 per bottle by the dozen
