92 Points - James Halliday August 05 2015

2012 Lion's Tooth of McLaren Vale Shiraz Riesling was reviewd by James Halliday in The Wine Companion at 92 Points: "Hand-picked, whole bunches were placed on top of riesling skins (sufficient to equate to 5%) and open-fermented with plunging for 11 days; then 18 months in predominantly used French oak. Whether riesling provides the same alchemy as viognier is an open question; this is certainly a lively wine, with a freshness to the mouthfeel of the light to medium-bodied palate."
