Leasingham Bin 7 Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Leasingham have been an integral part of Clare Valley viticulture for over a hundred years, a tradition that's been evolving since 1893. Rich soils and cool, moist conditions were perfect foundations for what is today Australia's premier Riesling appellation. Despite advice to the contrary, Leasingham planted Riesling extensively in the early 1940s. This vision led to Leasingham establishing a reputation for the finest Rieslings. Today the tradition lives on, the Leasingham name is forever linked to the exuberant styling which is recognizably Clare Valley Riesling.

Leasingham's 260+ hectares of vineyard located to the north and south of Clare township, yield some of the country's finest fruit. Bin 7 is vinified from parcels of Riesling grown to distinctly different sites, including distinguished vineyards around Watervale and Neagles Rock. Two neighbouring vineyards are located in the eponymous town of Watervale, famous for fine Riesling, others are located at the eastern ridge of Clare. These parcels have historically been the foundation of the Bin 7 style, selected for their fineness, generosity of flavour and vibrant mineral backbone. The small, individual parcels of Riesling grapes are gently air bag pressed to allow the best possible free run extraction.
