You’d be mad not to stock up on this Riesling that was crafted by the two sons of Peter Barry, of the famed Jim Barry wines in the Clare Valley. This Riesling is all about delicate flavours showing grapefruit and lime aromas with a clean, tight palate and a zesty acid finish.
Past Accolades and Awards:
2014 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "From a 44yo dry-grown vineyard, hand-picked, chilled overnight, then whole bunch pressed. Apple and lemon blossom fragrance sets the scene for a particularly elegant and focused palate; while still in a primary phase, and very delicate, it has utterly perfect line, length and balance."
From the Winery
As the third generation of the Barry winemaking family, we now hold the keys to this boutique winery. Riesling is the Clare Valley's signature variety and this is our ninth vintage from clos Clare's Riesling patch, adjoining the historic 'Florita' vineyard in Watervale. The 46-year-old dry grown vines were hand-harvested on the 21st of Feburary and taken to The Wilson Vineyard at Polish Hill River, where they were chilled for 24 hours prior to whole bunch pressing and vinification.
This 2016 Watervale Riesling is a handmade wine that shows poise, elegance ad character, which is indicative of this vineyard. The nose displays delicate aromas of lemons and limes, which carry through onto the palate. The tightly coiled palate shows great balance between citrus fruit and the hallmark acidity of the 2016 vintage. After such a successful harvest, we invite you to share in this handcrafted wine.
