O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River 2011

Riesling - so undervalued.  This classic Clare Riesling from the Polish Hill River sub-district can be found for around $18; it's mightily fine now, yet will easily reward the patient drinker over 10-20 years.

Honeysuckle, lime aromatics, a nod toward the tropical fruit spectrum with some guava, and citrus in the form of lemon, and orange peel.  In the mouth it offers a tart, concentrated, mineral body with a backbone of acid that provides focus and intensity. 

Delivering a short burst - a mini-explosion of flavour - before its fine line and length deliver chalky minerality through the finish.  93 - Very Good
