Clare Valley Riesling... Yes please. "Will it Cellar?" Yes! "Will I love it?" Yes!
Get on it quick and see what the hype is about. This will cellar for up to 10 years if you can wait that long!! Last Vintage scored a massive 94 Points from the Maestro Halliday and we reckon this little gem is good to go further again.This region is truly where some of the best Riesling comes from in Australia and this is no exception to the rule! Elegant and restrained, yet quintessentially Clare Valley at the same time.
This Riesling is made from hand-picked fruit, whisked to the winery and crushed immediately to maximise fruit flavours. This Riesling shows beautiful, crisp fruit lift on the nose. Powerful zesty citrus and lime flavours explode on the palate and carry through to a refreshing finish. An approachable style, this Riesling is drinking beautifully now. Cellaring for up to 10 years will see the wine develop with mature Riesling flavours
Awards and Accolades
94 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Wine Companion "There's a good feeling of energy about this wine. You'll find all the expected and desirable aroma and flavour characters, along with the acidity that goes with the style, but it just has a bit more zip than some of its peers. The bouquet has a little extra lift, and on the palate, there's thrust and dimension to the flavours, with particularly good length. A cellaring certainty."
