AUSTR RIESLING

Riesling - Clare Valley, Australia

Sweetness:  Off Dry Alcohol:  12% Body:  Medium

THE WINE
Citrus aromas with underlying floral notes make for a fresh and vibrant aroma. Juicy lemon-lime flavours fill the palate, accented by orange blossom and apple notes, mineral tones, and a backbone of crisp,  energetic acidity. The subtle sweetness really makes the citrus sing in this succulent & refreshing white.

THE REGION
Located in the Mount Lofty Ranges, most of the region’s vineyards are planted at elevations between 400-500m. The climate is moderate-continental with long, warm summer days and cool to cold nights. The higher altitude of the region ensures these colder nights, slowing the ripening of the grapes and allowing the fruit to ripen more evenly, retaining crisp acidity. Clare Valley is known for its Rieslings, and wines grown here are heralded for their hallmark Riesling flavours – citrus, lime, apple, with mineral notes and crisp natural acidity.

THE FOOD
This Riesling’s sweetness and acidity make it an easy pairing for a variety of dishes. Try with lightly to moderately spiced Asian inspired dishes, pad thai, or Tex-Mex dishes with cilantro & avocado. A fantastic pick for cheese fondue and creamy cheeses.
