Vintage conditions

A late winter and early spring rain led to an even budburst with good early canopy growth. Dry conditions prevailed from November onwards, with rainfall well below average and a
generally cool growing season. Working with both Kirrihill vineyards and loyal Clare growers, this wine is a blend of multiple vineyards throughout the Valley to showcase the fine expression of Riesling.

Vinification details

With the Riesling grapes picked in the early morning, when the temperatures are at their coolest, crushing and pressing of the chilled fruit occurred immediately with the aim of
limiting any skin contact. After cold settling, the clean racked juice was then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It was then chilled immediately after
fermentation to retain and protect the varietal aromas to remain pristine until bottling in mid 2021.
