Leasingham 2001 Bin 7 Clare Valley Riesling ($7.99)
Clear, very pale brass color. Tasty lime scent with a whiff of bananas. Crisp and dry, fresh white-fruit flavors follow the nose; tart, tangy citrus in a long, clean finish. Remarkable bargain. (Packaged with a Stelvin-brand screw cap.) US Importer: International Cellars, Chantilly, Va. (Jan 4, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Cantonese shrimp with lobster sauce.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
