Mitchell Clare Valley Watervale Riesling 2017

From the Watervale subregion of the Clare Valley, this wine from Mitchell Wines (no relation!) is quite aromatic, with aromas of lime, jasmine and a herbaceous note.  The palate is dry, with mouth watering acidity, a youthful touch of CO2 and a medium body.  It provides delicious drinking now and will also suit long ageing.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.0%. Price: $25. Source: Sample.

Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2016

This is an excellent riesling from Mitchell Wines in the Clare Valley.  Lemon and lime aromatics give way to a dry, medium bodied palate with refreshing, linear and deliciously minerally acidity.  Substantial length on the finish completes the picture.  Yes.  The vines were planted in 1960, are not irrigated and tended organically.  (Alc: 13%, Region: Clare Valley, South Australia, Rating: Very Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting?  Yes, Drink: now to 2029+, Tasted: July, 2017, Source: Sample)
