Country:  Australia
Region:  Clare Valley

Grape:  Riesling

About:  The aim is to craft a wine of delicacy and finesse that will age well. To this end, the juice was extracted using gentle whole berry pressing to protect the delicate fruit flavours and prevent any extraction of course phenolic character. It is then chilled quickly to just under 10 degrees C. The entire process occurring within ~15 minutes of harvest to ensure the true varietal and regional characters are captured and retained. The juice was allowed to cold settle for 24 hrs before being racked off gross lees. A cool fermentation was carried out in stainless steel vessels, using a relatively neutral yeast strain to preserve varietal characteristics. The fermentation was completed to a natural level of dryness. Minimal fining and filtration is employed prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:  At release, the wine is a very pale green/straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge. It displays vibrant lime aromas with hints of lemon and faint floral notes. The wine has a mouth-watering crispness with flavours of lime and lemon underpinned by minerality to give a beautiful linear focus to the palate and balancing the purity of fruit flavours.
