"A very good example of this trusty regional (or subregional more accurately) varietal marriage. Absolutely line-and-length aromas of lime cordial, lemon zest and scented bath-salts. Nice mouthfeel; quite slatey in texture but juicy with it, the acidity not too bracing but providing sufficient structure for the fruit and lingering on the finish. Highly drinkable.." 93 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017.

Background

The fruit for this wine was selected from Bryskies vineyard bordering the north of the Watervale township. This east facing vineyard has a proven record of producing fine Riesling. Immediately after harvest, the fruit was cold pressed and free run and pressings fermented separately. The wine was allowed to reach dryness to produce the crisp style for which Richard Hamilton is renown. We were impressed with the flavour of the pressings and as a result, a proportion was blended back into the free run to enhance the mouth feel and to give a burst of flavour. The lead up to vintage was quite dry in Clare Valley leading to modest crops. Early and mid February saw some above average temperatures alleviated by some rain in mid February which replenished the vines. Subsequent cooler weather slowed ripening to present a later harvest than in recent years. Quality is sensational.
