Riesling 2019 – Black Market Deal #33967
- Light, aromatic
- Clare Valley
Simple winemaking is usually the best plan when it comes to Clare Valley riesling. You take high quality fruit, press it gently, ferment at a cool temperature and then let it rest. If you want to work in a bit of texture, as is the case with this one here, simply leave the wine on its lees for a couple of months. That’s it...that’s all there is to do. If you try to do anything more clever than that, it ends up being clunky. This riesling is mouthwateringly crisp with flavours of lime, elderflower, grapefruit and quince. Lay it down for a few more years and you’ll start to see that texture become more prominent. It doesn’t need to be any more complicated than that.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
