Knappstein have a long history of producing premium Clare Valley wine and own some of the best wine growing territory in the region. Clare Valley also happens to be perfect for riesling, with cool nights that encourage the varietal's natural acidity. This elegant offering brings the classic lime notes that the region is known for and satisfies with a long and lingering finish. Classy as they get.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Beautifully composed and finely expressed, the wine shows lemon pith, nectarine and crunchy apple notes on the nose. The palate delivers silky flow and gorgeously layered mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by vibrant acidity. Superbly structured and lingering."
The winery writes "The 2022 Riesling has both elegance and intensity, with true Knappstein traits of lime, spice and white florals on the nose and a generously flavoured palate. Lively acid, mineral texture and a powerful and persistent lemon finish."
