Wakefield 2018 St. Andrews Riesling (Clare Valley)

Editors' Choice

Wakefield's single-vineyard Riesling is always as traditional Clare Valley as it gets and this vintage—a dry and low-yielding one—doesn't disappoint. From grapes grown on terra rossa over limestone soil, it's austere and very young but has all of the lemon-lime, white-pepper, chalk-dust and honeysuckle characters you'd hope for. The palate is tight, focused and bone dry, with laser-sharp acidity, a talc-like texture, fresh citrus fruit and a long limey finish. Drink 2021–2029 and likely beyond. Christina Pickard
