clos Clare Watervale Riesling 2017

The clos Clare Watervale Riesling is the made from the Clare Valley's signature variety and this is sourced from clos Clare's Riesling patch, adjoining the historic 'Florita' vineyard in Watervale. The 46-year-old dry grown vines are hand-harvested and taken to The Wilson Vineyard at Polish Hill River, where they are chilled for 24 hours prior to whole bunch pressing and vinification. This is benchmark Clare Valley Riesling, bone dry with secondary characteristics of lemon meringue pie and honeyed notes starting to appear, adding complexity to the lemon zest and fine mineral core on the palate.

Restrained elegance and refreshing minerality earned this a place on the Gold List, with Ieva Markaityte of Portuguese Concepts admiring the ‘delicate, floral nose, with its warm hints of ripe white peach’, adding: ‘The palate is well balanced and crisp with some stony minerality coming through and really good length.’ ‘Classy and balanced,’ thought Tanguy Martin of New Street Warehouse, while Guillaume Mahaut of ETM Group noted: ‘Restrained complexity with flowers and honey and soft acidity.’
