Atlas Watervale Riesling

£23.50

An excellent example of Clare Valley's bone-dry Riesling style. Crisp and aromatic, with petrol notes signifying this could be nothing other than Riesling! A flinty backbone keeps the wine super-fresh and wonderful citrus and apple notes clean the palate further.

Vineyard

Fruit was sourced from two unique vineyards in the Watervale subregion of the Clare Valley, where the vines are rooted in quintessential red loam over limestone. They are hand-pruned and shoot thinned to ensure balanced ripening, before being harvested in the cool of the night to ensure optimal juice quality.

Winemaking

This wine was gently handled with minimal intervention and precise attention to detail. We included a small percentage of solids into the clarified juice prior to fermentation at 12–14ºC in order to build texture whilst preserving freshness and flavour.
