O'Leary Walker Riesling Clare Valley 2005

$35 Riesling from Australia. Typical of an Australian wine, the fragrance is intensely fruity, apple and lime, crisp. It's medium- bodied, medium- alcohol, high acidity, dry, and the acidity is so high that it's almost sour and austere. Not particularly complex and medium finish. Not my personal favorite, but Clare Valley does make good Riesling.

It paired well with Japanese curry with prawns. The curry was light, a little spicy and wasn't creamy. I bet it will pair well with Maple Seared Scollops too!
