Knappstein's premium Riesling from the Ackland Vineyard, situated in the heart of the Watervale sub-region.

A wonderfully pure example of the Riesling variety and the vineyard at Watervale. Wine displays an explosion of intense citrus fruits with exotic tropical notes and distinctive 'Watervale' florals.

Expert Reviews

"The Ackland vineyard is in the Watervale district of the Clare Valley – at just over 430 metres above sea level. I can now safely say the 2012 vintage is my favourite since the produce of the 2002 season. "

Campbell Mattinson, (24/FEB/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


Knappstein Ackland Riesling shows lifted aromas of lime juice, bath salts and talc.


The palate, although incredibly tight in its youth, shows tremendous intensity, drive and power with ripe citrus flavours prominent and a slatey / chalky minerality providing an interesting textural element. A strong natural acid backbone aides the wine's impressive length and a degree of dry extract frames the wine and suggests a long future ahead.


This wine will reward ageing for up to 10 years and beyond.
