Region: Clare Valley
Bottle size: 750 mL
The use of only the free run juice at pressing has resulted in this wine being intensely flavoured and aromatic, retaining delicacy at the same time. The wine has lifted varietal Riesling character with floral and citrus aromatics of grapefruit, lime and lemon. The palate is seamless with a richness of flavour built from dry ripening conditions leading into vintage. The wine retains freshness due to our trademark brisk natural acid finish.
Rieslings from the Clare Valley are enjoyable for many years; zesty and spirited when youthful or left over time their maturation is slow, graceful, and worthy of appreciation. Our Riesling is a prime example of this wonderful phenomenon
Remaining true to our commitment to make quality Riesling expressing pure regionality, only the free run juice was used to make this premium Clare Valley Riesling.
Following crushing, de-juicing and juice clarification, fermentation proceeded for two weeks at 12—14°C. The wine has been protein and cold stabilised to normal standards and fined with isinglass. Minimal sulphur dioxide has been used and our Riesling contains only natural acidity.
Use as an aperitif or enjoy with any seafood.
Halliday Wine Companion 2021
In one sense there’s nothing much to say about this wine, simply because its persona is classic Clare. Lemon, lemongrass and lime fruit are fused together by acidity that doesn’t jar on the finish, simply providing the all-important length and crisp finish.
95/100 points and excellent value
