Nik Darlington
Marketing Director, Graft


A deliberately delicate expression of Clare Valley Riesling, exhibiting lifted floral notes, kaffir lime, freshly squeezed lemon juice, grapefruit peel, bath salts, and underlying talc. Classic citrus notes are complimented by the mouth-watering chalky and mineral texture on the palate, finishing with a fine and taut acid line.

7.0 g/l acidity

Vineyard: Penwortham, Sevenhill & Watervale

The base of this wine comes from the lean and hungry rocky soils shared by two high altitude vineyards in the rugged Hills of Penwortham and Sevenhill. The resulting bunches and berries are tiny, but intense. They ripen late in the season and provide a rapier-like acid line. To provide balance, the remaining 50% is sourced from a slightly more fertile and abundant north-facing site in Watervale planted in the 1960’s on red loam over quartz providing more generosity, weight and flavour.
