2005 Grosset Watervale Riesling

Moving on from the two Chablis wines I threw a ringer into the mix with a bottle of 2005 Grosset Watervale Riesling from Australia's Clare Valley.  This wine was bone dry and very complex.  Lots of dried fruit flavors and lychees.  Wonderful acid and it kept a good grip on the mouth.  All that said - there was a mellowness to this wine that made it very appealing.  I'm not sure that lobster was the right food for this wine and it sat on the table until folks were done eating. Then it disappeared quickly into glasses, and those glasses seemed to drain rather quickly. 

2005 Grosset Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley.  13% alcohol.  $30 about six years ago.
