Leo Buring Dry Riesling 2011

Leo Buring remains an ever reliable choice for good quality riesling. This bottle did not however appear to be as interesting as the 2010, as the tough 2011 Clare Valley vintage perhaps made its mark. I say “appear” because I tasted the 2010 vintage back in February and so am reliant on memory and notes rather than an easier side-by-side comparison.

The wine? A straightforward aroma of lemon and citrus fruits. On the palate, citrus flavours and firm acidity. This is certainly an enjoyable effort that went well with bream at the local and at $16 or thereabouts let’s not be too fussy. 83 points
