Choice parcels grown to excellent vineyards around the premier districts of Valley Clare form the backbone of fruit. Growing seasons are long and cool, greatly enhancing the aromaticness of white varietals, concentrating flavours and developing fine natural acidity. Riesling flourishes here and yields world class fruit. Grapes are harvested and bunches pressed, batches are inoculated by a pure yeast culture and treated to vinification in controlled fermenters at cooler temperatures for up to a month, aimed at retaining the pristine elegance of Clare Valley fruit. The finished wine is assembled and bottled early with a view to drinking beautifully from day one.
Pale straw with lime hues. Fragrances of stonefruit and limes, floral hints, beeswax and jasmine, honeysuckle, lemon blossoms and quince. A taught and fruit driven palate exhibiting delicate background florals over steely acid backbone and crisp minerality. Refreshing and clean throughout, an elegance and soft glow of apple acidity that carries through to the finish.
