Riposte by Tim Knappstein The Scimitar Clare Valley Riesling

Tim Knappstein clearly still has Clare flowing in his blood, because even from his base in the Adelaide Hills he’s conjured a quintessential Clare Riesling of articulate expression. It’s racy, clean and refreshing with a wonderful lift of lemon blossom and talcum powder, accurate granny smith apple and lime zest fruit, chalky mineral structure and a magnificently persistent line. $19 at Hunt for Wine and Options Wines.
