1999 Jim Barry The Florita Riesling
Wine Rating 
 
97

This was a privilege to drink, reminding me that an exceptional aged riesling is one of the wine worlds great gifts.

A mature golden yellow in colour, the nose gives lanolin, buttered toast and flint with a suggestion of candied lime. The wine unfurls itself with heady combination of buttery nectarine that flows swiftly towards a more citrus dominated expression. There is a long and satisfying lime inspired finish, accentuated by struck match and flint.

An Australian classic.
