Wine Maker - Marnie Roberts
Grape Variety - 100% Riesling
Region - 100% Estate Grown, Single Vineyard, Watervale, Clare Valley
Colour - Lightest gold with slight green hues.
Bouquet - Alluringly aromatic! Blossom, crunchy green apple and the slightest whiff of talcum powder tempt you to give it another swirl. The layers then begin to open and the subtle underlying lemon pith and jasmine enter the dancefloor.
Palate - A fabulous balance between fresh lemon juice and crunchy minerals provides a fleshy and lingering persistence to this wine. Seriously moreish – put it on repeat!
General - 2017 in the Shankley vineyard was astounding. The Spring was wet and the Summer mild with fresh cool nights; talk about the perfect conditions for Riesling! With a new understanding of our vineyards, thanks to our winemaker Marnie Roberts, we are allowing more of the terroir to shine through in the wines. This special single site in our vineyard portfolio has begun producing some very special parcels of fruit.
We have decided to return to artisan, small batch wine making with these parcels to allow the incredible fruit to shine through in a very terroir focused wine. 100% free run, 100% natural acid and no fining.
Serve With - Turn up your tunes and heighten your senses. This gorgeous Rizza will ramp up the tempo with or without food. Our favourite choice for this one would be prawn, chilli and lime butter skewers shared with a party of friends or just all to yourself!
