aA 2010 Clare Valley riesling should be a pale, clear colour, for example,a he says. aIf it were deep yellow that would be a bit suspicious, not what you'd expect that wine to be.a

The next step is to test the aroma or sniff the bouquet. Swirling the wine in the glass will aerate it and open up the wine. …
