Tasting Notes

Aroma Explosive florals, fresh lime, and citrus combine with a hint of rockmelon and wet limestone on the nose. Palate The entry is driven by the nose, with a heap of fruit weight. Chalky in texture with white floral, citrus flavours, and a juicy finish.

Winemakers Note

Wine has been flowing in the Clare Valley since 1851 and
is an integral part of the culture. A small area, accounting
for less than 1.5% of Australia’s total wine production, it is
one of Australia’s most prestigious premium wine regions,
most famous for its Riesling and Shiraz. With its beautiful
rolling hills, ideal winter rainfall, and Mediterranean climate,
the Clare Valley carries a unique history and winemaking
heritage.
The tiny village of Watervale (population of 246), nestled in
South Australia’s Clare Valley, is renowned for the quality of
its Riesling. Our Watervale Riesling is picked from a special
part of the Florita vineyard in Watervale. This famous Riesling
vineyard usually achieves full ripeness with high natural acid
levels
