Moonlake Clare Valley Riesling 2010 Wine Tasting Review

Sun on my back.

Menagerie of wine dogs at my feet. 


Surrounded by chatter and laughter.

Spoiled with a platter of cheese and my glass charged with a summer perfect vino. 

This is the magic of  our Willunga Aperitivo tradition.

Moonlake Clare Valley Riesling 2010 Wine Tasting Review

Well Looky Here

Light bush-flower-honey yellow.

Sniff Sniff

Sweeter nectarines than most riesling – which reveals its’ age

Touch of fizzy lemon sherbert

Maturing marmalade aromas

Sip Sip

Flavours follow through identically from the nose.

Still has lovely acid but it has softened beautifully to be nicely balanced.

Nom Nom

Drink with pungent, oozy, aged washed rind cheese, quince paste and Tuckers Supergrains crackers.

The washed rind surprisingly adds floral notes to the vino.

Gimmie Gimmie

$18 from Virgin Wines.

12% alcohol.

Rating

Value – good.

Bronze – quite drinkable.
