Our winemaker Pete Burford, certainly stamped his touch of class right here. The RC is a wine that I like to describe as having powerful elegance, the nose is pristine with pithy lemon and dashes of fresh lime. The wine looks darn near clear! It's acid structure is amazing with a beautiful intensity of flavor that lingers.
Don't take my word for it, read the words from Ken Gargett....
"RC Riesling 2022 – This one is more than a bit thrilling. Sure, a stunning vintage for Clare Riesling and there are plenty of brilliant wines, but this surely sits among the very best. The RC is only released in great years and 2022 certainly qualifies as that. The fruit is sourced from the Cellar Block Vineyard and the wine is made from purely free run juice. There were only 210 dozen produced. Do not miss this, if you are a Riesling fan. Few wines can walk the tightrope between a gossamer-like delicacy and a steely power in the way this does.
Green/gold in colour, we have an entrancing and lifted nose of bath salts, talc, kaffir lime leaves, spices, steel and lemons. As fine as the perfumes are, when we hit the palate, just wow! It explodes with those flavors. There is fresh citrussy acidity, great length, impeccable balance and a clean, lingering, refreshing finish. This has fifteen years ahead of it without a problem. At the end of a long day tasting, one hopes that there will be a wine or two which has stood out, so that one can enjoy a glass in the evening. This was that wine." 97/100. $45.
