Origin: Clare Valley
Region: Adelaide Hills
Style: Light-bodied, crisp white wine made using the tank method
A most proper varietal expression on this Riesling. Aromas of petrol, peach, apricot, lemonade and meadow flowers. Clean, crisp and refreshing on entry. Finishes off with a long, tangerine finish. The alcohol and acidity levels are medium, which is not the best contribution for long-term cellaring, but nevertheless, this is still a ridiculously quaffable wine we’d like to bathe in. Straight fire from Clare Valley.

His grand dream came true and today, he represents the firm backbone of the Barossa avant-garde movement.
