Jim Barry Lodge Hill Riesling 2019, Clare Valley, South Australia

In South Australia’s celebrated Clare Valley wine region, the Jim Barry winery was founded in 1959 by Jim and Nancy Barry. Widely credited with helping to shape the valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and Shiraz, Jim Barry played a substantial role in cementing Clare as one of Australia’s premier wine regions. This wine shows a brilliant pale straw colour in the glass. The nose lifts with aromas of kaffir lime, pear, and ginger spice. Delicately poised with mouth-watering acidity, this Riesling is balanced with a burst of lime juiciness and lifted orange blossom florals.The palate has a great presence with fine chalkiness leading into a persistent finish.
