Steve Wiblin’s 2015 Erin Eyes Riesling

Erin Eyes Riesling 20152015 is a near classic Clare Riesling Vintage.

My 2015 Riesling was blended from 3 blocks over 2 weeks. The majority (75%) is from an East facing Sevenhill block with a smaller amount (20%) from neighbouring Penwortham. I added for the first time 5% of Polish Hill fruit to tighten up the wine and increase some floral notes.

All parcels are slightly riper than last year which adds some tropical fruit complexity to my traditional and intense citrus and tight minerality.

The wine is a generous Riesling in flavour but with my characteristic lifted acid finish.

Aroma – A rich citrus perfume tempered by a soft mango and musk.

Palate – Overt lime, mango and grapefruit flavours. A full mid palate complimented by the floral, mineral and soft acid finish.

All in all a very drinkable wine even at a few days in bottle. In a month it should be ideal. Don’t just restrict this one to seafood or pre dinner drinks. Chicken and some cheeses will also match well with this wine.
