Wine Colour
At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge.

Wine Bouquet
The wine displays zesty lemon and lime aromas along with faint orange blossom and talc.

Wine Palate
This particular Clare Riesling is still tight and restrained with a linear focus to the palate and purity of fruit flavours. There are lashings of fresh lemon/lime juice characters up front and a slate-like minerality across the mid-palate. It is backed up by a persistent and refreshing lime acid finish.

Cellaring Notes
Under ideal conditions this wine should cellar well to 2034, possibly longer.

    Jeremy Bowell, Taste Explorer, October 2014

    ItÆs not hard to see why the Riesling has been getting so much love. Imagine squeezing a fresh lime onto a hot slate tile with a jasmine flower stuck behind each ear and youÆre getting a sense of the aromas leaping out of the glass. On the palate thereÆs more fresh lime, a splash of yuzu and the faint hint of white spring flowers wrapped around a flinty core that lingers long on the palate. There is a precision and balance here for such a young wine that borders on precociousness. Drink it now with freshly shucked oysters or pan seared scallops. If you have the patience, this is a wine that will reward 5+ years of cellaring.

    Very pale straw colour, with a slight green tinge. Lime and lemon aromas with a touch of orange blossom and talc, as a result of fruit sourced from Clare Valley. Tight slate-like minerality on the mid palate. Whole-berry pressing has resulted in lime, citrus and tropical friut flavours. Also a hint of orange blosson on the palate. Long and refreshing lime acid finish.
