Mr Riggs Watervale Clare Valley Riesling 2018
Ben Riggs and Kerri Thompson have been known to combine vintages in the past. They decided to bring two incredible winemakers once again together again using a sub-region of Clare, South Australia, home of some of the best Rieslings in the world. Hand pruning the vines to allow the best possible shaping and to maximise sunlight for growth. The 2018 vintage is dry due to the minimal rainfall in the growing season, but with careful irrigation ensured the fruit quality remained high.
The delicate nose carries lime oil and soft citrus blossom charaters to the palate with a mouthfeel of abundantly vibrant and lifted zesty lemon, and lime balances with bright, fresh, full fruit sweetness. Being from the cooler sub-region of Clare - a crisp, vibrant, and tangy finish appears at the end of each sip.
