Kaesler Wines Stonehorse Palomino Dry 2013

From Barossa Valley Palomino vines planted in 1961, this wine has been made into a dry table style rather than into its usual fortified apera style wine. Unusual and not without interest.
Pale gold colours with a light greenish tinge.
Smells grassy and floral with some petroleum and slatey mineral action occurring in the background. It has a Riesling-esque feel about the perfume and indeed the taste.
Zesty lime and citrus flavours over nectarine and talc fill the light to medium weight palate. Fresh and clean. 

The mouthfeel is quite fat and as the wine progresses through the mouth it peaks mid-palate before dropping off towards the finish.

Dry and fresh in its overall feel. Not a complex wine but it is easy to enjoy. Serve well chilled.
