2017 Clare Valley Riesling
Aromas of fresh lemon drops mingle with Granny Smith apple and floral notes. There are generous citrus flavours with chalky texture and minerality. This is followed by grapefruit characters, uplifted by a touch of mango on the palate. These flavours arrive in waves and a line of juicy acidity guides the wine through to a soaring finish.
The fruit is sourced from a selection of vineyards situated mainly around the Watervale sub region of the Clare Valley including our Ackland Vineyard. Vine ages range from approximately 10-30 years old. The fruit was handpicked and gently crushed with only the best free run fruit juice used. It was then cold settled and cool fermented with neutral yeast to dryness. The wine was stabilised prior to filtration and bottling.
