Wakefield, Clare Valley (South Australia) Riesling St. Andrews Vineyard 2014

($20): It could be the screw cap closure, but whatever, this wine benefits enormously from 15 minutes of aeration before consumption.  Then it sings.  Dry and cutting, it has the enamel-cleansing quality of first-rate Riesling.  A firm racy edge makes it better with food, such as spiced Asian or Indian fare, as opposed to a stand along aperitif.
