Grape Variety - 100% Riesling
Region - 100% Estate Grown, Shankley Vineyard, Watervale, Clare Valley
Colour - Light straw yellow with the slightest hint of a green hue.
Bouquet - This reserve Riesling is refined, poised and balanced. It has a focused fleshy citrus line, intricately underlaid with fresh talc and subtle blossom.
Palate - Finger limes, apple blossom, lifted minerals and bath salts seductively lure you into this pristine Riesling. Careful, it’s a captivating one!
General - It has power and energy, it is meticulous and it is elegant. The wine is delicate but has a length and complexity that continues for some time. This Superstition Reserve Riesling is a serious drop that’s made with weight and layering. It will cellar for years (if you can wait that long!) 100% free run juice, hand-picked grapes from old vines. No added acid or finings. 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 from this very special site.
Serve With - The balance, weight and complexity of this wine lends itself to be versatile with any food or just luxurious on its own. My personal favourite for this seductive beauty is smoked salmon and caviar salad. This wine can be cellared for 10-15 years.
