98/100 – Winestate Riesling of the Year 2022
Clare Valley Riesling is as distinctive in style as Waipara is. Dry, citrus laden and an ability to age, developing turpentine notes as it ages. This is a new addition to the Paulett range, coming from their vineyards across the Clare Valley. It saw immediate success in Australia and sold out upon release there. We have managed to get a few cases from the NZ allocation.
Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Our new release 2021 Clare Valley Riesling has been introduced to celebrate the quality of fruit from our Vineyards across the Clare Valley. This Riesling displays lovely citrus and orange blossom notes while providing a balance of natural acidity and lingers on the palate, giving freshness and length. Another exception Clare Valley Riesling to add to our range."
98/100 Winestate Magazine
"Pale green straw. Lifted aromatics of citrus fruits and orange blossom with tropical notes and underlying stone fruits. Juicy vibrant flavours of lemon, lime, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Generous balanced natural acidity that lingers on the palate, gives freshness and length."
96/100 James Suckling
"Intense lime and flinty flavors here with pithy lime peel too. Smells concentrated. The palate confirms that with explosive lime and apple flavours. Acidity is a feature and the flavors run so long."
