Knappstein Watervale Ackland Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
A pure caricature of Watervale, a highly eloquent expression of Riesling, as influenced by the very special terroir and clime from which it is derived. Planted in 1969, the Knappstein Ackland River site is a dry grown property of classic red loam over limestone soils, perfect for yielding vintages of outstanding Riesling fruit. The delicate floral nuances and calico textures are unique to the handful of precious sites within this exclusive Watervale precinct.

Slate and shaley rocks which lie abundant around the Ackland vineyard play a crucial role in the aromatic development of the Riesling. Planted to cool altitudes of 420-450 metres overlooking nearby Watervale township, Ackland's east northeast facing aspect protects the vines from the prevailing winds off the Great Southern Ocean. Whilst capturing the full morning sun to develop strong lime and citrus flavours, the high natural acids are greatly enhanced by the cold night temperatures. All the fruit is selectively hand picked, gently crushed with only the best free run juice used. Musts are cold settled and fermented with neutral yeasts at cool temperatures to dryness, cold settled once again for clarification prior to filtration.
Light yellow colour. Ackland shows lifted lemons and limes with delicate floral aromas. The palate is rich with lemon lime and has wonderful persistent acid to complement the fruit sweetness. Knappstein displays the Watervale generosity of intense citrus fruits, exciting and immensely pleasureable, the persistence is balanced by a refreshing mineral acidity. It finishes long and lingering.
