    A wonderful example of intense, pure Clare Valley Riesling from the estate's Ackland Vineyard at Watervale. Good growers on elevated slate sites from a little further north in the Clare Valley also contribute fruit. All the grapes are hand picked and gently crushed, only the best free run juices are retained. Knappstein is made with minimal intervention to preserve purity of fruit expression. Juices are cold settled prior to a long fermentation with neutral yeast at low temperatures, all the way to dryness, lasting between fourteen and eighteen days to preserve the delicate flavours and aromas. Upon completion the wine is racked off yeast followed by a light filtration prior to taste trials and assemblage.
    Straw lime colour. Lifted citrus aromas with distinct notes of slate and spice. The palate displays classic Watervale characters of lemon and lime with a fine mineral structure. Showing wonderful depth of flavour, a distinct delicacy and liveliness. The natural acid level provides the wine's backbone and palate line and is perfectly balanced even in the wine's youth.
