2018 Clare Valley Watervale Riesling




…….sensuous lime, lemon and floral aromas with prominent citrus flavours on the palate, balanced with embracing acidity….



Produced as a classic dry style.


The fruit was sourced from the Castine family Golf House single site vineyard. The soil profile is red loam over friable limestone and the yield was 3.7 tonnes/acre.


Varying temperatures of mild to hot days accelerated the ripening period. However, the traditional cool nights helped retain good flavour profiles. Pronounced lime/lemon aromas and flavours, with a hint of orange blossom are a confirmed indicator of another great Riesling vintage in the Clare Valley. The grapes were harvested in late February. Only the free run juice is used for the Tim Gramp Riesling. Post fermentation the wine was cold stabilised and filtered. The wine was bottled in late November. 12.0% alc/vol.
