Overview

The 2014 growing season was a testing but rewarding one in the Clare Valley. Winter rains were solid but a very warm summer saw day time temperatures often in excess of 35’C. A predicted rain event in February had wine producers on edge but it proved to be the vintage saviour with the soaking giving vines a much needed drink whilst resulting in little to no disease pressure. Early signs suggest wines of a similar quality and style to the lauded 2012 season.

Expert Reviews

Knappstein’s Hand Picked Riesling is a reliable performer – and often better than that.

This release is in the middle of its general quality range. Good fruit intensity, a sense of style, and a clean tangy finish – without being anything scintillating. Steely apple, lime and spice is the order of the day. Fennel and floral notes if you look hard enough. Good summer drinking. Rating 92 – Drink by 2021, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (OCT/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine has youthful talc-like aromas combine with bright lime juice character and bath salt highlights.

Palate

The palate is juicy and lively with the lime juice theme continuing and mixing with a quinine twist. The wine finishes with a dry flinty character and shows tremendous persistence.
