Pikes, Traditionale Riesling, Clare Valley, South Australia 2022
(at London, 27 Feb 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2032
Now in its 38th vintage, Traditionale is Australia's best-selling premium Riesling. While not as incredible as the 2021 vintage (squirrel some away if you can find it), this is still a great-value, ageworthy drop from a fine, cool year. Bone-dry with a perky grip of lime juice acidity, orange blossom lift and crisp flavours of lemon sherbet and wet river stones. A great aperitif for shellfish.
