Clare Valley Range

2021 The Insider Riesling

The fruit was divided into 2 parcels. One parcel was made in stainless steel and underwent slow, cool fermentation which was stopped early to drive the lemon sherbet and mandarin flavours, while the second parcel fermented in barrel to drive texture and palate weight. The two combine in harmonious balance.

Growing Conditions

Some good rain events toward the end of winter and into the start of spring provided a good start to the growing season, with soil profiles observed maximum moisture levels still at the start of November. Vines put on good strong early growth, with the emergence of inflorescence providing a positive insight of the potential yields to come.   

Vineyard

From Watervale in the south, to Clare in the north, select patches of grapes are chosen for their ability to contribute to the unique Insider style.
