Tasting Notes

This delicious and complex Riesling showcases just how well our Rieslings can age.

Colour

Showing a youthful colour of pale straw with green tinges.

Nose

Beginning to show hints of toast & honey on the nose but still with a clean crispness.

Palate

Developing some honey, toast & richer characters on the palate now, still with underlying flavours of lime/citrus flavours evident and with a delightful freshness of acid through the middle palate and finish.

Food Pairings

Whiting, Oysters, Prawns.

Specifications

Vintage Conditions

The growing season for 2009 began with soil moisture levels at or near full capacity from the August rains. Mild weather continued during December and January; gradually warming to a heat wave and then followed by perfect ripening weather with mild days and classically cool nights. Riesling fared exceptionally well in Clare.
