ABOUT THE WINE MAKER
Clare Wine Co was established in 2008 by the owners of Kaesler Wines, Barossa Valley.
Winemakers from Kaesler, Stephen Dew and Reid Bosward are responsible for producing the wines under the Clare Wine Co brand. The company focuses on the three most successful varieties of the region: Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Riesling excels in Watervale, the Shiraz and Cabernet comes from Polish Hill and all represent some of the finest fruit found in the region. The oldest vines are 43 years old.
ABOUT THE WINE
The nose shows fresh limes with hints of stone fruit notes such as nectarine, with a palate that is quite rich for a younger wine. Nice citrus flavours, lychees, hints of clove on the palate with a bit of sugar, Just to take the sting out of the acid. Mouth filling, and well structured. A great easy drinking style so get the friends together for BBQ lunch with fresh salads and seafood. To be honest it has similar nuances too the 2016 vintage, but I think it is just a better balanced between the fruit and acid. Excellent value Riesling.
