Un-fined, unfiltered, textural riesling of unique personality from Clare Valley. A beautiful wine of powdery texture, inward juiciness, great length, tight and taut feel. There’s lemon-lime meets ginger scents which follows through to the palate providing a zesty, spicy and textural mouthfeel. A real foodies wine and a natural with spiced Asian cuisine.
