Limited Clare Valley Semillon Riesling 2017

Limited Clare Valley Semillon Riesling 2017

An Antiquarian is a collector of rare or ancient books and curios, a name befitting this rare and exclusive wine.

Antiquarian wines, the pinnacle of quality, are hand crafted from only the very best parcels. 

The 2017 Antiquarian Semillon Riesling is the first release and innovates with two varieties that grow superbly in the Clare Valley. 

From our estate vineyard, Semillon is generous with texture and tropical fruits.  Riesling adds zing through the mid-palate. 

A refined and poised wine from low yielding vines that was co-fermented and matured in second use French Oak.

Vintage  

2017 was a cool, late and long vintage. 
A cool vintage with slow, even ripening conditions created  wines of consistency and smooth flavour retention. 
The balance in style and weight throughout is a testament to a  vintage where we were fortunate to dodge trying conditions,  such as hail, and achieve exceptional quality as a result.

Colour  

Pale gold in colour with brilliant clarity.

Nose  

Ripe tropical and citrus blossom complexed with a hint of  toast and fresh herbs.

Palate  

Refined with elegant flavours of grapefruit, baked lime cheesecake and freshly cut cantaloupe. 

The texture is at once  generous and zippy with the combined strengths of each variety  collaborating in harmony. 

Food  

Perfect with seafood both fresh and chargrilled, some delicate desserts and soft cheese.  Vegan
