Our Classic flinty and minerally Polish Hill River Riesling packed with notes of lemon and lime with a clean crisp finish. Bright pale green. Citrus aromas of lime, lemon & grapefruit supported by subtle floral notes. Citrus florals follow through onto the palate complimented with supporting minerality and fine natural acidity providing a long elegant finish.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday
"This is a delicious riesling, a true rendition of the variety, courtesy of a blend of Rose's lime juice, Meyer lemon, passionfruit and Granny Smith apple held in a fine web of acidity. Time will bring change, but it's a purely personal decision to drink it now or later. Best have a bob each way."
90 Point Rated - Nick Butler The Real Review
"A genuine mix of lemon pith and flesh, driven and precise. Briars and a tease of talc round out the nose. Lemon-flesh returns to add citric thrust to the palate. While pure and pristine, it lacks the intensity and punch of better vintages."
A wet winter and spring produced localised flooding in the Clare Valley in late September, this provided the region with plenty of sub surface moisture. Decent rains continued into vintage and coupled with mild temperatures, contributed to excellent fruit and in turn wine quality.
Paulett Wines vintage started on Tuesday 7th March. Vintage start dates can be predicted by the date that Easter falls on. This held true for vintage 2017 which started approximately a month later than 2016. The Riesling flavour and yield has been very good, with the wet winter and cool spring creating excellent acid retention and varietal flavours.
In summary, the vintage was later than we have seen over the past few years, but quality is the best that we have seen in recent times.
