Winemaker Notes

The Clare Valley is Australia’s premier Riesling region,famed for dry wines of great depthand purity. This is a fine example ofthe style: aromas of lemon, lime and chamomile with a light palate full of zesty citrus fruit and a clean, crisp finish. Ready for drinking now, the bright fruit and acid in this wine willallow it to age gracefully over the medium term.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Handpicked Wines Regional Selection Riesling is a lovely, vibrant, and well-textured wine. TASTING NOTES: This is a beautiful wine with great energy. Enjoy its tart apple and mineral aromas and flavors with a Dungeness crab salad. (Tasted: April 15, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Handpicked is a contemporary and dynamic Australian wine company with a unique business model. Unlike most wineries, we do not limit ourselves to one region or style. Instead we aim to lead wine lovers on a journey through the world’s fine wine regions.

The Handpicked story grew from the simple, yet bold desire to bring the world of wine under one label. We 'handpick' the wine regions and grape varieties from around Australia and beyond to craft a global portfolio of wines which all reflect a supreme sense of place.

Handpicked is made up of a team of experienced winemakers, viticulturalists and wine lovers. Making wines across the world means our winemakers are constantly busy travelling to ensure we produce the highest quality wines from each and every region.

We achieve this diverse portfolio through our vineyards in Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Margaret River and Barossa Valley and through established partnerships with vignerons in other regions. Our two winemakers work closely with local producers to ensure our wines reflect the quality and regional character we are looking for.

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
