Hedonistic and tightly focused, this exceptionally balanced wine displays lemon, lime and a seamless spine of natural acidity leading to a finish of extraordinary length.

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 2035, possibly longer.
