Grape Variety - 100% Riesling
Region - 100% Estate Grown, Single Vineyard, Watervale, Clare Valley
Colour - Light yellow with green hues.
Bouquet - The unrivalled elegance and pristine fruit profile are very indicative of the vintage. Rich and supple fresh lime and white peach are all prominent with secondary aromas of mineral and blossom.
Palate - Energy and depth. Our 2016 Superstition Riesling shows a complexity that ensures a lingering presence of flavour. Lemon butter, lime flesh and hints of citrus are all pulled together with natural (no added) acid. This creates a balanced and integrated palate weight. 100% Free run with no added fining gives the wine texture and substance without hindering on the pure and delicate flavours that dictated picking in the vineyard.
General - The 2016 vintage delivered us with perfect Riesling ripening conditions. A dry spring and summer was followed with a small hit of rain 2 weeks prior to picking. This allowed the fruit to further develop intense flavours in balance with the acid and sugar. In turn, individual vines were identified and hand-picked in the optimum flavour profile window. Gently pressed and fermented slowly in controlled conditions to maintain the fruit purity, enabled us to make a truly exceptional expression of Clare Valley Riesling.
Serve With - The balance, weight and complexity of this wine lends itself to be versatile with any food or just luxurious on its own. Home style Gnocchi with a lightly herbed buttery sauce or with any lightly spiced food. This wine can be cellared for 10-15 years.
