Mount Horrocks 2015 Watervale Riesling

An absolutely stunning young riesling from consistently excellent Clare Valley winemaker Stephanie Toole, this outshone several more expensive rieslings in a recent tasting. It is made in a classic Watervale style, alive with all the joys of spring; floral on the nose, bursting with energy and driven by fresh citrus zest flavours, brisk minerality and crisp acidity. Pure as mountains stream, it is an estate-grown single-vineyard wine that is certified organic and weighs in at just 12.5% alcohol. I'd recommend snapping up a case for summer-long enjoyment. $33.
