Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE: Pale straw, with a light green hue. AROMA: Our Clare Valley Riesling is bright and fragrant, with classic fresh cut lime & lemongrass notes, alongside a subtle hint of wet slate. PALATE: Floral and refreshing, blossom and zest of lime dominate the palate, with secondary notes, akin to the pastry case of a lemon tart. This is derived from the lees contact and helps to complex and balance the mid-palate. The wine is crisp and dry, with a beautiful zing of grapefruit-like acidity to its’ finish.

Winemakers Note

The Clare draws its inspiration from the earliest days of winemaking in Australia. The label pays homage to the German Jesuit priests who fled persecution and settled in the Clare Valley. They were the first winemakers and brought with them Riesling’s 15th century origin story from the Rhine, Germany. Older still are the ancient soils where we now source our fruit. Soils that were once roamed by a giant wombat, the diprotodon, over 1.6 million years ago
