Stunning Aussie Riesling

I'm on the Riesling trail at the moment. Here's a brilliant Australian Riesling from the Clare Valley that's utterly delicious, with a nice elegance coupled with limey intensity.

Skillogalee Trevarrick Riesling 2008 Clare Valley
11% alcohol, sealed with a Vino Lok. 250 cases made. Amazing stuff: bracing, limey, minerally and quite fine, with lovely elegance to the intense fruit. Thereís a floral edge to the aromatics, as well as a pithy, citrussy depth. Itís one of the very best dry Australian Rieslings Iíve had, with lovely precision, purity and elegance. 93/100 (UK agent: Enotria)

Hello Jamie

It seems to be very low alcohol for a "dry" riesling. Any idea what the residual sugar is. Some of the Australians are getting quite brave with their sugar levels.

Not that low alcohol for dry riesling from Eden or Clare. The Petaluma style of somewhat riper riesling fruit will show higher alcohol, but many dry rieslings are still made here without residual sugar and with alcohols in the 11s.

It says 13% in the letter I received. And RS is 0.7 g/l
