Vickery Watervale Riesling 2015/6
Clare Valley, Australia
Fruit for this 2014 Riesling comes from the Brazel and Castine vineyards, both of which are adjacent to the Watervale township. Grapes were picked at optimum ripeness, pressed in Watervale to minimise skin contact, and low extraction rates minimised phenolic pickup in the juice. The juice was moved to our Barossa facility for cool and careful fermentation in stainless steel tanks, maintaining separate batch identities. The winemaking was completed in September 2014, with only the very best components being used in the final blend.
Colour: Vibrant pale green-gold straw. Aroma: Hallmark ‘Watervale’ aromas showing pure Riesling characteristics of fresh lemon-lime citrus, floral honeysuckle and a creamy richness. Palate: A rare pairing. Generosity of flavor with beautiful lively precision and line. The flavours are fresh lemon citrus, with soft mineral acidity supported by a moreish, persistent and mouth-watering finish.
