Overview

Riesling was one of the highlights of the 2015 Clare Valley vintage. This year, Jim Barry's winemakers had at their disposal leading edge winemaking equipment to allow optimum quality juice to be delivered. Gentle pressing and a rapid move into the fermentation allowed the natural fruit flavours to be preserved.

One of the earliest 2015 Rieslings to be released, the pure Riesling grape characters are captured in this bottle for your enjoyment.
