91 Points, (Silver Medal) 2016 Clare Valley Regional Wine Show
I really rated the 2016 Vintage. I’m not saying it was as good as 2002 but from our vines, it was superior to the great vintage of 2012. Our Riesling is made using fruit from 11 specific rows from the Helmsford Vineyard in the golden triangle of the Watervale sub region. The wine displays Classic Clare Riesling characters of lemons, limes and talc but now with a little age it’s starting to show a hint of development on the nose and palate. I don’t enjoy bracing acidity on my Rieslings but rather fruit and acid in balance to allow for early drinking and potential cellaring. This is a wine that will develop for another 3 – 4 years and you will be rewarded for cellaring, but it is drinking so well now why wait! Just a tick over 2 grams of residual sugar and made using only free run juice.
We’d love to send you some wine for your cellar!
