Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

2016 was an excellent follow-up to the 2015 vintage in the Clare Valley, making Riesling wines with similar intensity but greater delicacy and suited to long-term ageing. The grapes from this wine were grown on Neil and Heather Grace’s vineyard at Watervale. The clarified, free-run juice was fermented cold, at around 10-14°, to retain the delicate fruit flavours.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale lemon yellow with a green tinge

Nose
Intense, yet delicate lemon aromas

Structure/Palate
Lively citrus flavours. Fresh and crisp, combining intensity and delicacy. Finishes dry, with excellent length.

This is a classic Clare Valley Riesling, refreshing now by itself or with salads, subtly flavoured dishes and seafood. It will gain further complexity until at least 2022, suiting fuller flavoured dishes as it develops.
