2020 Skilly Riesling | 6 Pack
Region: Clare Valley
Varietal: Riesling 100%
Colour: Brilliant in clarity and appearance, the initial green tints making way to light straw as it ages.
Nose: Initial aromas of green apple, lemon skin, and lychee slowing making way to quince and buttered toast flavours as the wine starts to slowly age.
Palate: Tending to be lean and delicate in style being built on a tight core of natural acidity, the palate and aroma both feature green apples, pome fruits, and lemon zest in a long and linear expression of the variety.
Winemaking: A single vineyard wine from our Woodvale vineyard that lies beneath Mount Oakden in the Skilly Valley, this cool and easterly facing block reflects a unique terroir within the Clare Valley. Rieslings that are made from parcels of fruit from the Skilly are typically very delicate and lighter in texture, with lower alcohols, brilliant clarity, and higher acidities than warmer parts of the valley. The hand-picked fruit, completely free run juice and a cool and protracted ferment all play important roles in shaping this wines uniqueness and individuality.
Cellaring: Will age beautifully for potentially twenty-years.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Seared scallops with chili and lime dressing.
