Watervale Riesling

From the outset, producing a Riesling from Australia�s best Riesling region was on the list of icon wines to be pursued by Ben Riggs. The opportunity to produce Riesling from Clare Valley�s coolest sub-region, Watervale, (in every sense of the word) was not to be missed!

The Riesling has been sourced from Brysky Vineyards, the vines are planted by single cordon trellising, traditional to the Clare region. The fruit is machine harvested and crushed to stem. Pressings are separated from free run and the juice is partially clarified. The wine then undergoes gentle cold settling, tank fermentation with with complex German yeast fermentation. It wine rests on lees for 8 weeks and until final clarification and bottling. The Rieslings from the cooler sub-region of Watervale, south of Clare, are crisp, tangy and delicate and this example is no exception.

Aroma

The wonderfully delicate nose carries lime oil and soft citrus blossom characters seamlessly to the palate. Here, the mouth feel is abundantly vibrant and lifted offering zesty lemon and lime carefully balanced with bright fresh, full fruit sweetness.
