Royal Hobart Wine Show 2018
97 Points Ned Goodwin for James Halliday’s Wine Companion
95+ Points Gary Walsh
The story of Riesling in Australia is as old as the wine industry itself. The famed Florita Vineyard is synonymous with the classic grape variety and was established by Leo Buring in 1962. In 1986 the Barry family acquired the 80 acre property and began to write the next chapter in the famous vineyard’s history.
“Essence of Clare Riesling, intensity of fruit, structure and drive, lemon/lime, firm almost dusty texture, fresh squeezed lime and rind with a dash of tonic, great length. Benchmark, I feel. Keep as long as you can, or drink now with something salty and tasty.” – 95+ Points Gary Walsh, Winefront.
“Superlative Clare! Grapefruit pulp, lemon zest, jasmine, bath salts and Thai herb notes stream across a bow of limestone-derived minerality and palate-whetting acidity. This is long, penetrative across a multitude of layers and yet, despite the razor-sharp definition, relaxed. There is nothing hard or abrasive about this. It flows long with alacrity in its step! This will reward patience in the cellar.” – 97 Points Ned Goodwin for James Halliday’s Wine Companion
