Watervale Riesling Mitchell, Clare Valley, South Australia, 2017
100% Riesling, dry grown and hand picked from 50 year old vines.
This dry wine has a powerful, concentrated aromatic intensity showing lemon, lime and spring flowers on the nose. The palate has immense generosity of fruit flavour and incredible mineral complexity and length. We have no doubt that the quality of the vintage will reward cellaring this wine for more than a decade.
Great with oysters, asian inspired dishes and the classic 'fish and chips'.
Winemakers notes "A traditional, low intervention style that we have used for the last 40 years. Our old dry-grown vines grew a wonderfully balanced crop with small berries but great flavour development. The grapes are hand harvested and treated very carefully in the winery with only the highest quality free-run juice used. The wine experiences a long gentle fermentation with our indigenous vineyard yeasts and is aged on lees until bottling in the first week of September."
