"A very discreet aroma, talcy and gently floral, with traces of lemon and lime that come through more strongly on the palate. The acidity is bracing and extremely refreshing, leaving a lemon sherbet aftertaste. A gorgeous young riesling, loaded with energy, not too dry but beautifully balanced. Great value too." - Huon Hooke

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Intense and complex with pristine lemon lime citrus fruits, regional lavender, and clove as well as mineral notes. Great purity and aromatics.

Flavours and Palate

Pure and fresh with clean fruit flavour, mouth-watering wet stone supported by a pithy lime and lemon sherbert core. A fine slatey texture and salivating acid line drives the palate to a crisp finish. Powerful and flavoursome. Classic Clare Riesling

Clare Valley, South Australia

South Australia’s stunning Clare Valley is an enigma. Its ability to produce full-bodied reds and delicately floral Rieslings under a continental climate makes it famous for wines of intensity and balance (its secret is cool afternoon breezes to slow down ripening).

Vintage Conditions

Good winter rainfall set up the vines well for the growing season, establishing healthy canopies protecting the Riesling fruit from sun exposure. A few hot days just prior to Watervale Riesling harvest compromised some vines, making the selection process quite critical. Polish Hill River, however, was slightly later to ripen and showed up as the highlight with great natural acid retention and intense flavour development in the fruit.
Thus, Polish Hill River forms the majority of this blend for this vintage
