2017 Rieslingfreak No.6 Clare Valley Aged Release Riesling


2017 Clare Valley

Rieslingfreak No.6 is harvested from our family vineyard at White Hutt in the Clare Valley. Made in a dry style with aging in mind; this wine is an elegant, restrained and remarkably pure expression of Riesling. Harvested from the same vineyard alongside the five-time trophy winning 2017 No.3, the 2017 No.6 is excellence personified. Five years of careful maturation in bottle has imparted classical toasty notes to the bouquet, while the remarkable vibrancy of this superlative vintage still shines brightly through with aromas of fresh citrus and wet slate. The palate is supremely elegant and refined with the slightest hint of buttery maturity in the mid-palate, while the finish sings with bright acidity and the lingering flavours of lime and elderflower cordial. This wine will continue to develop over many years to come and will certainly reward patient cellaring.
