Hand picking and careful handling preserve its classic lemon and lime flavours with hints of Watervale florals. The palate is balanced by a refreshing mineral acidity. The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity, with the fruit gently crushed with only the best free-run juice used. Fruit comes from Knappstein's Ackland Vineyard and three vineyards on elevated slate further north towards to town of Clare.

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2010 Knappstein Hand Picked Riesling shows lifted citrus fruit aromas with distinct floral notes. This intensity of floral lift of the nose is one of the hallmarks of this year's Riesling vintage here at Knappstein.


The palate exhibits fresh lemon and lime fruit flavours which are framed by the wine's classic Clare Valley mineral structure. This wine whilst exhibiting generous sweet lime, retains a zesty acid level keeping it lively and balanced. Knappstein's commitment to hand picking produces a delicate wine displaying excellent purity of flavours and textures.

Cellaring Potential

Fantastic drinking now, this wine will reward ageing for up to six years.

Vintage Condition

The 2010 vintage was another benevolent one for the Clare Valley. A wet spring ensured our old dry grown vineyards such as Auckland had very good canopies and excellent vine health.The region experienced a very warm November which affected the flowering of some varieties but generally we enjoyed warm days and mild nights without significant temperature spikes.

Due to this excellent canopy and vine health our vineyards revelled in these conditions with even steady ripening and a hassle free harvest period.
