2016 Knappstein Clare Valley Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you were to pick a Riesling from anywhere in Australia, where would you head? We might be biased but the Clare Valley is an obvious choice and the Knappstein Winery have had well over a century of practice. Classic Clare Valley Riesling aromas of citrus and a hint of florals before a palate dominant in lemon and lime intensity. There’s a smart mineral structure that drives it all along before zesty acids provide a balanced and long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Aroma of fresh lemon drops mingle with Granny Smith apple and floral notes. There are generous citrus flavours with chalky texture and minerality. This is followed by grapefruit characters, uplifted by a touch of mango on the palate. These flavours arrive in waves and a line of juicy acidity guides the wine through to a soaring finish.

Alc/vol: 12.2%

2016 Knappstein Clare Valley Riesling

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2016 Vintage) says
Good intensity. Good push through the finish. Accessible but with underlying integrity. Lime juice and rind, blossomy characters, a lick of spice. Highly perfumed and immediately engaging both as a result, and throughout.
