Region: Clare Valley
Bottle size: 750 mL
Lemon and lime juice and orange blossom aromas and flavours characterise this wine, made in the classic Australian style with just a touch of residual sweetness to balance the crisp natural acidity. It is a pristine wine with generous length of fruit flavour.
Riesling grapes were harvested at their peak flavour maturity from vineyards through the central and northern Clare Valley. After destemming and must chilling , the juice was separated from skins, clarified and fermented for 14 days. The use of ‘free-run’ juice only ensures continuation of the true Mr. Mick style: crisp, pure and fruit driven.
Relatively cool and moderate temperatures in the five months leading into vintage, meant that the Riesling retained good natural acidity providing freshness.
It is a great wine to simply enjoy on its own, or partner with any fresh Australian seafood!
The Wine Front
Clare Valley riesling, fresh and ready to go.
It’s a juicy, early-drinking style and it’s done pretty well here. Lime and lime blossom characters are the go. It’s aromatic and tasty and there’s not a hiccup in sight.
