"The quintessential Clare Valley Riesling from one of Watervale’s most recognised vineyards. Crafted by Julian Langworthy it’s a real stunner with its perfumed notes on the nose, pristine lemon and lime fruit flavours, brilliant acidity and crisp, dry finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
The wine showcases a heady bouquet of citrus fruits, orange blossom and marzipan.
The palate reveals intense lemon and lime fruits carried by seamless texture and refreshing mineral acidity to a dry and delicate finish.
The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. The fruit was hand picked and gently crushed with only the best free-run juice used. It was then cold settled and fermented with neutral yeast at cool temperatures to dryness. The wine was cold settled prior to filtration and bottling.
