RockBare The Clare Valley Riesling 2019

AustraliaThe Clare RockBare comes off three blocks just north of the Watervale township in the Clare Valley. Two of the blocks date back to 1975, and all three bring something different to the blend. The winemaking is simple: a cool early morning pick is pressed, the juice clarified, and fermented slowly in stainless steel. The wine is then left on lees and stirred often over four months, building texture on the palate before bottling. Expect a classic cut lime nose with a dusting of lemongrass, tangy citrus flecked with ginger, minerals, and sea salt.
