Adelina - '19 Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley SA
Varietal: 100% Watervale Riesling, Gullyview Vineyard
Winemaking: Red Loamy clay over limestone. De-stemmed and crushed before pressing; the free-run juice was then settled, racked and fermented. Ferment is halted with around 5 g/L residual sugar to balance the muscular acidity that this terroir delivers.
Nose: Juicy lime and lavender
Palate: Tight acid, ripe lemon & a mineral finish.
Our Notes: Purity, longevity and nowhere to hide! Sounds like my internet browsing history!
All jokes aside this is a serious wine. Classic Watervale style with citrus notes of finger lime and light floral botanicals. Forget going to festivals, this has acid structure for days, with a touch of RS at the end (~5g/L), which makes the come down all the more sweeter.
You’d be “hard pressed” not to search this one out.
Music Pairing: Retrograde - James Blake
