Quick Overview

It’s juicy and flavoursome, yet stony and firm too; the best of both worlds. Lime juice, lavender and aniseed perfume, pure acidity, superb line and length, with a lip-smacking quartz-like finish. It’s great now, and likely greater later."
Rated : 96 Points Winfront.com.au

Product Description

Brilliant, pale green. Typically restrained for a young “Merle” displaying pristine aromas of lime, lemon and stone fruits along with a hint of wet slate and talc. Again restrained / subtle with the citrus characters the main drivers, but once the acid kicks in the whole thing livens up and the textural / talc elements of the palate are apparent. It displays great length of flavour and a pureness that typifies this vineyard.


Another terrific vintage of “Merle” that will not harm its reputation as one Clare’s finest Riesling examples. For those who like their Rieslings crisp and fresh with a little texture it will appeal immediately, but for those who like complex lemon butter and toastiness of bottle aged Clare Valley Riesling you can cellar it for 8-15 years.
