Winemaker's Notes

The colour is light pale green with brilliant green hues. The bouquet shows a complex and intense mixture of aromas - limes, lemons, oriental spice, and orange blossom. Typical of the Clare Riesling style, the primary fruit flavours are lifted and enhanced by flinty/wet slate aromas.

The palate shows elegance and finesse in true Clare Valley Riesling style. The intense, yet delicate lime, lemon and spice characters are bountiful on the front palate, supported by a steely/flinty/slate backbone. The natural acidity in the wine is perfectly balanced to give the wine a long, pleasantly clean and crisp lemon finish. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 15 years.
