Grape variety: 100% Riesling

Producer: Jim Barry

Alcohol content: 12.5%

Origin: Claire Valley, Australia

Notes: This wine is a pale straw in the glass. The nose has a fantastic lift of punchy lemon sherbet, bath salts, orange blossom and freshly grated ginger, enhanced by quintessential Watervale Riesling musk. A wine of great line and drive, the palate has lashings of flavour with elements of lemon curd, grapefruit, guava and nashi pear. The palate over-delivers on flavour, with soda like minerality, and provides a generous wine with extraordinary length.

 

The tiny village of Watervale (population of 246), nestled in South Australia’s Clare Valley, is renowned for the quality of its Riesling. Our Watervale Riesling is picked from a special part of the Florita vineyard in Watervale. This famous Riesling vineyard usually achieves full ripeness, with high natural acid levels.

Wine has been flowing in the Clare Valley since 1851 and  is an integral part of the culture. It is one of Australia’s most prestigious premium wine regions, most famous for its Riesling and Shiraz. A small area, accounting for less than 1.5% of Australia’s total wine production. With its beautiful, rolling hills, ideal winter rainfall and Mediteranean climate, the Clare Valley carries a unique history and winemaking heritage.

Food Pairing: Delicate or raw fish, Sushi, Tuna
