Winery Tasting Notes
An exceptional year in Clare which has produced more florals instead of the typical citrus notes. There is citrus blossom, spring flowers and grated lemon zest.
The palate is intense with excellent fruit intensity. There's attractive lemon/lime splice notes with a distinct 'pretty' floral edge. A mineral core of natural acidity gives flavour and length to this wonderful example of classic Clare Riesling.
Ideal with salt and pepper squid.
Since the purchase of Chateau Leonay in 1945, Leo Buring has built an unparalleled reputation for quality Riesling production in both the Clare and Eden Valleys. Riesling expresses the nature of its growing conditions like no other varietal, earning its nickname as 'the naked grape'. The combination of climate, soil, aspect and location all add up to create discernibly different characters in Rieslings from each region.
Leo Buring traditionally produces Riesling from the Clare Valley and the Eden Valley. These wines share similar attributes, a clean fresh flavour and the ability to age, but possess their own individual characters.
