2014 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling
I cut my teeth on Clare Riesling and Barossa Shiraz. I would always buy this when a special occasion prompted it. I now celebrate differently but always generally enjoy this when I get the chance to try it. Tasted blind. A whiff of lavender and rose quite enticing. Lime juice and more lime.. Not much else to it and doesnt have the length of intensity that I previously remember. Its a few years old now so might be in a flat spot. However I think it might be an off vintage.
What I’m tasting: Lime, Jasmin, Petrol
What I’m thinking and feeling: A little flat. Id look to other vintages or other winerys.
Where we bought it: The Den - Now Cellarone
Region: SA - Clare Valley
Wine(refined) Value Rating :
- Nothing to see here, there’s better value elsewhere
Wine(refined) Quality Rating :
- Interesting – No doubt this had its shortcomings, but it had more than enough interest to keep me satisfied and coming back for more. (14-15/20)
