Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Shows restrained & delicate aromas of lime/lemon, citrus blossom and bath powder, along with some subtle wet slate characters too. Very clean and attractive. Displays the clarity and purity of an exceptional vintage. Fresh, crisp and quite delicate, the palate is loaded with attractive citrus characters. The lively acid provides much of the drive and sees the wine finish clean and dry with just a hint of talc like grip on the finish. Delicious.
This is the 33rd release of our most important wine. The “Trad” always makes a terrific drink upon release, but 5 -7 years in the cellar will amply reward those who like their Rieslings with some bottle development."
93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, September 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Lime juice and barley sugar, a floral perfume with some kaffir lime leaf. It’s juicy, limey, feels just straying into the zone of subtle sweetness, but the acid crunch, lime rind in tonic, and subtle chalky texture keeps it neat and tasty. Approachable. Good fun too."
18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Clare Valley is Australia's best known Riesling region and the place in which 16 courageous wine producers pioneered screwcaps as a group initiative in 2000. Their wines tasted so fresh and the logic behind their closures was so flawless that the rest is history. And the wines have improved no end due to the closure, which preserves the flavours that make Riesling taste so great: fresh, crisp green apples, intense lime and peach. This dry wine is balanced beautifully by zesty acidity."
