Clonakilla Canberra Riesling 2016 – 96 points from Halliday and “outstanding future”

The new release from Clonakilla of their 2016 Canberra Riesling is a stunning follow up to the brilliant 2015. Producing a wine of impeccable acidity means this is riesling that will cellar very well indeed! ¬†James Halliday agrees, rating it 96 points and saying “…accelerates continuously from the first floral whiff through to the aftertaste; the mid-palate progressively builds ripe lime flavours as the wine is retasted, but is matched by the flinty acidity of the finish and lingering aftertaste. Sustained by that acidity, it has an outstanding future.”¬†
