The 2015 Velvet & Willow Riesling is made from grapes grown in the St Claire vineyard, in Watervale. This Riesling has, lovely subtle aromas of lemons and limes. These aromas flow seamlessly onto the palate forming a crisp steely mouthful of lemon and citrus flavours with floral hints, followed by a lingering, crisp, acidic finish.
An excellent example of a young Clare Riesling.
Cool harvested, swiftly crushed and pressed, this wine was fermented in stainless steel so as to capture and preserve all the floral aromas and flavours of the grapes, making the wine as natural as possible.
If properly cellared, this wine will round out beautifully over the 3-5 years from vintage, as it matures, to become a classic aged Riesling.
At present, this wine is an ideal accompaniment for seafood, salads and chicken dishes. As it ages, it will become a fabulous aperitif.
