A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“A strong example of this famous Australian wine style.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 11 - 13°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 6 years

TASTING NOTES

The Clare Valley is Australia’s premier Riesling region, famed for dry wines of great depth and purity. This is a fine example of the style: aromas of lemon, lime and chamomile with a light palate full of zesty citrus fruit flavour sand clean, crisp finish. The strong aromatics and refreshing acidity of this wine will allow it to age gracefully, developing deeper notes of honey, tropical fruits and a hint of kerosene that is characteristic of aged Riesling. 

SEASON

While the season leading up to the 2018 vintage was warm, there were no major heatwaves, which can knock the vines about and affect the harvest. It was a very dry season, though what little rain there was came in many short bursts that helped replenish vines. Despite early frosts in vulnerable vineyards there was good fruit set thanks to calm weather around flowering. The second half of the season was relatively steady, though warm overall, leading to a slightly early harvest of fruit with great flavour development.

WINEMAKING

This wine was made to capture and focus the delicate aromatics and clean fruit flavours for which Clare Valley Riesling is famed. Temperature-controlled fermentation and storage protect the bright notes; there was no oak used in the making of this wine.

THE REGION

THE REGION

Clare Valley

Elevation is the secret to Clare Valley’s success as a fine white wine region. It is South Australia’s northern-most and coolest wine region. Its distinctive Australian Riesling style is known the world over.

The limestone terra soils tend to produce more perfumed wines, while slate soils are associated with more austere expressions.
