Wilson Vineyard Wilson DJW Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare South Australia
Daniel James Wilson would write DJW rules on school book covers, desks, garden edgings and wet concrete whenever the opportunity arose. In 1997 DJW established a small 5½ acre plot of Riesling in the highest and most fertile corner of the family property. From inaugural vintage it became apparent that the fruit from DJW block was quite different. The hand picked harvest from this supreme site was kept separate and DJW Riesling went on to claim a string of prestigious trophies.

The larger vines of DJW block yield bigger bunches and berries than its siblings at Polish Hill River, distinctive grapes with a vibrant juicy fruit chewing gum character and bright citrus flavours. The grapes from DJW Vineyard are predominately hand picked and chilled, passed as whole bunches through the 30 year old Diemme press press and treated to a long cool fermentation. A synthetic fining agent known as Polyclar and course of filtration are employed to finish the wine crystal clear. Residual sugar levels are carefully controlled favouring a slightly higher level in the DJW Riesling to complement the bigger fruit typically found in DJW wine.
Pale gold colour. Aromas of citrus lemon tart and grapefruit with garden herbs. Lively upfront lemon zest with a slatey minerality not normally seen from this vineyard. Unmistakable Polish Hill River power on the palate, this vintage will be one for the long haul. There's enough mouthfeel to balance the sharpness of the acidity, great balance and structure, a slight weightyness, the dry finish hangs and hangs.
