- FOUR TROPHIES & GOLD MEDAL CLARE WINE SHOW
- TROPHY BEST PRODUCER CLARE VALLEY WINE SHOW
Pale green in appearance with typical Clare Valley Riesling characters of lemon, lime and apple plus some bath salts/talc elements also on display as well. The palate is fresh, crisp and dry; the concentrated flavours and balanced acidity works in conjunction with the long, textural finish. Try with Gruyere cheese.

"Four trophies, three in riesling categories, and Best Wine of Show at the Clare Valley Wine Show '15. This starts where its gold medal-winning sibling finishes; it is awesome in the way it exerts its power, taking hold of the palate without any fuss, then tightening and lengthening its grip each time it is retasted. The rainbow of citrus fruits pays scant attention to the slatey acidity that is the bedrock of its long-term development."
95 Point Rated - Gary Walsh The Wine Front
"It’s the black label, and it’s now marked ‘Premium’ on the back label, though for the sake of continuity, we’ll call it Gaelic Cemetery Gaelic Cemetery, not least because I enjoy repeating myself. When I’m tasting a bunch of Riesling, I most often whizz through the lot first off, and then tap the bottle(s) that really fizz my sherbet. This one did. Sweet lime, cut fennel, vanilla, spice. Juicy explosion of Clare Riesling flavour, fine cut of acidity, flinty texture, and entirely convincing limey flinty length. Absolutely sizzles."
92 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Powder-puff aromas, fresh and floral. The wine is soft and full, dry and weighty with a touch of phenolic grip. This is a big flavoured riesling."

Clare Valley Wine Show 2015
The GCV Premium Riesling comes from the oldest block of Riesling vines on the vineyard. Our aim is to make something that is more textural than the Celtic Farm, not relying totally on acidity to give length and drive to the wine.
