E.B's The Settler - Clare Valley Riesling 2018

35.00

Region - Watervale, Clare Valley, South Australia

Vineyard

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the WSS Vineyard in the Watervale

sub-region of the Clare Valley. The vines were planted in the 1970’s and are

oriented east to west to maximise daily sunlight. The vineyard is 350 metres

above sea level and grown on deep red clay loam over limestone soils, with

pockets of slate.

Growing Conditions

2018 saw a long, dry growing season with below average rainfall, with

vintage beginning in the first week of February. Warmer ripening conditions

and lower yields produced greater concentration of flavours and a bold

structure.

Winemaking Notes

The 2018 Settler Riesling presents enticing florals and intense citrus

aromatics, like freshly squeezed lemon juice. The palate is elegant and

balanced, evoking citrus zest flavours and a crisp minerality. The lingering

finish is well-balanced by a line of crunchy natural acidity. This is a wine that

can be enjoyed now, but will gain greater complexity as it ages in the cellar.
