Tasting Notes

Clearwater 2009 RIESLING

 

Winemakers Notes

This 2009 Clearwater Riesling was harvested from our Georges Road Vineyard in Waipara. The stony, silt clay soils of the vineyard and the abundant cool late summer sunshine are reflected in this ripe, powerful Riesling, which is full of ripe pear and citrus flavours that linger on the palate.

Following our philosophy of reducing wine maker influence, the Clearwater 2009 Riesling employs very minimal wine making practices which allows the region to fully express itself. The flavoursome palate will accompany most foods however, spicy white meat dishes are a favourite.
This wine can be enjoyed immediately or cellared.
