Kerrigan + Berry Mt Barker Great Southern Riesling

From the steep, gravelly, 1970s- planted slopes of the historic Langton vineyard in Mt Barker, this is a wine that sings of old vine character and great site expression. It’s magnificent now in its purity and drive of lemon, lime, red apple and crunchy pear, and it promises to live long, thanks to a backbone of high-strung acidity, supporting a pronounced, finely mineral mouth feel. A riesling of excellent drive and persistence, seamless harmony and enduring energy. $30 at Cracka.
