2008 Wakefield Riesling – Clare Valley, Australia David Honig August 10, 2010 Tasting Notes 3 Comments This is a very citrusy Riesling, sending out waves of tart citrus, lemon, lime, a touch of pink grapefruit, all wrapped in green apple peel. Flavors are reminiscent of Sauvignon blanc but the more viscous mouth-feel hints at Riesling. It is a pleasant food-friendly wine, but not one that would stand out among similarly priced Rieslings, for it lacks any special Riesling qualities.

Dry, steely and mouthwatering in its structure, the wine overflows with pear, grapefruit, slate and floral flavors.” July 31, 2010 It’s really quite a lovely wine. http://www.morenovalleywaterdamage.com water damage moreno valley thank you for providing valuable information about the topic.
