Overview

A wonderful example of intense, pure Clare Valley Riesling. Hand picking and careful handling preserve its classic lemon and lime flavours with hints of Watervale florals.

Palate 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 the town of Clare.

Expert Reviews

Light straw-green; the fresh and fragrant bouquet is good, but the palate soars above it, with an exquisitely detailed array of lime, grapefruit and lemon fruits, the acidity itself a glossy reflection of the fruit flavours. Outstanding value. Rating 96 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015
