The elegance of the fruit in its natural state is protected and nurtured through minimal intervention in the winery.
The Clare Valley is renowned for Riesling as a variety as the combination of high altitude of 400m and continental climate with cool to cold nights and warm days creates a regional expression of balanced minerality and finesse.
Pale white straw in colour, clear and bright.
Full of citrus zest, lime juice aromatics and plush floral notes.
A wine of purity made in a limited quantity. In a classic Riesling varietal expression true to the Clare Valley and made from the optimal conditions of the 2017 vintage, this year’s Riesling is a classic style. With forward, appealing primary fruit in a delicate and dry palate, there is a generosity in the mouth with refined texture making for a weightier Riesling. The wine finishes clean, with lingering citrus fruits and sherbet. There is a plush acid component that highlights the minerality and slate characters of the region.
The texture, integrated mouth-watering acid and citrus appeal of this wine allow it to be paired with a wide range of food. From a lamb burger with the lot to a delicate steamed prawn dumpling.
