Tasting notes

12/04/2010

In 1946, the late Jim Barry became the first qualified winemaker to work in Clare; his winery is still family owned. This Riesling has a delightful nose, with lovely length and depth. The palate can't quite live up to it, but it's still extremely drinkable - zesty, grapefruit and mineral. £9.99 (15.5 points)
