Growing Conditions

A cool dry winter and hot start to summer had us bracing for another difficult vintage. Thankfully, we received some welcome rain at the start of February which helped to keep the vines fresh. Cool temperatures during February and March was perfect for vines to ripen exceptional flavours. The grapes for this year’s Knappstein Riesling were harvested in the third week of February.  

Vineyard

The fruit is sourced from our own Clare Valley vineyards, showing the spectrum of flavours when blended carefully together. Vine ages range from approximately 10 – 30 years old.
