KONNOWLA THE RING­MAS­TER 2013 RIES­LING $ 15 Clare Val­ley, SA 12.5 per cent PALE with flashes of green, the bou­quet is toasty, her­bal and cit­rusy, be­com­ing more lime- like in the mouth on a lean, tight and youth­ful palate which, at this stage, fin­ishes a lit­tle hard and short and is in need of a bit more time or plenty of air to show its best.


THE LOST WATCH 2013 RIES­LING $ 22 Ade­laide Hills, SA 12.5 per cent A MORE del­i­cate and fruit- for­ward style than the An­gove with ginger and Thai basil aro­mas and flavours lifted by a touch of fruiti­ness, the palate soft, nicely bal­anced and with good acid pro­vid­ing a pleas­antly clean and re­fresh­ing fin­ish.


2012 RIES­LING $ 25 Rowella, Tas 12.3 per cent WITH fra­grant honey and flo­ral aro­mas and a palate that’s juicy and fruity with­out be­ing overtly sweet, this is a more Ger­manic style of ries­ling with vi­brant acid­ity and a suc­cu­lent, in­tensely flavoured and just off- dry fin­ish.


JARAMAN 2012 RIES­LING $ 25 Clare Val­ley, SA 12 per cent A SUR­PRIS­INGLY closed nose and fairly un­der­stated cit­rusy lime flavours on a palate that is soft, fresh and easy- go­ing and which could build more in­ter­est with fur­ther time in the bot­tle.
