Winemaker's Notes

This Riesling is vibrant, clear and bright displaying green and straw hues. The aromatic characters of the Riesling grape are apparent on the nose; fresh lime and lemon so typical of the Clare Valley are at the forefront with delicate floral tones adding complexity. On the palate this Riesling shows lovely youthful acidity. With a steely mineral backbone, the elegant palate frames the fruit perfectly.
