3 Stars & Top Value – Huon Hooke, The Real Review, February 2021

“Sensuous lime, lemon and floral aromas. Exhilarating citrus flavours on the palate balance nicely with the embracing acidity, finishing with good length of flavour.

“Great as an aperitif at the end of the day, or enjoy it as a versatile food wine…..during summer/autumn it goes perfectly with a big pile of chilled/cooked blue swimmer crabs or yabbies!”

Description

STYLE: Produced as a classic dry style.

VITICULTURE: 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 1.2 tonnes/acre.

VINIFICATION: 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 hints of orange blossom are a confirmed indicator of another great Riesling vintage in the Clare Valley. The grapes were harvested in mid 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

TASTING NOTES: The fruit for this wine was sourced from the famous Watervale region off the Castine family Golf House single site vineyard. A classic dry style of Riesling with sensuous lime, lemon and floral aromas. The exhilarating citrus flavours on the palate balance nicely with the embracing acidity, finishing with good length of flavour. Cellaring potential of 7 – 10 years will reward the consumer with a wine of enticing complexity
