Low yielding, pristine fruit, harvested at optimal ripeness with all natural acid, free run juice and intuitive, gentle vinification. A true regional classic. Recently awarded Elite (95 Points) at the Canberra International Riesling Challenge, a fitting tribute for our 25th Anniversary vintage (1998-2023); attesting to our commitment to excellence in viticulture and winemaking.

Palate

Another delightfully cool ripening year, 2023 once again delivered Riesling with great balance and lovely natural acid at the crusher. This wine appears subdued in youth, light blossom and citrus zest overlay a subtle and appealing minerality in the mouth. Tight, mouth watering acidity tickles the finish and the second sip delivers more flavour as the wine warms on the tongue.

Vintage

2023

”This 25th anniversary release comes from such an exciting Clare Valley vintage that offer stunning value – stock the cellar! Pale lemon hue. Lovely citrus notes, but it is especially redolent of limes. Pleasing aromas of florals, but it is the limes to the fore – no surprise for a quality Clare Riesling. Fine acidity, so this is well balanced with impressive length. If you want to try a classic Clare Riesling, especially one so well priced, look no further. In good cellars, this has 12 to 20 years ahead of it. This is really good and a wine worthy of celebrating such an anniversary”
