SUPERSTITION RESERVE RIESLING 2016
Appearance: Light yellow with green hues
Nose: The unrivalled elegance and pristine fruit profile are very indicative of the vintage. Rich and supple fresh lime and white peach are all prominent with secondary aromas of mineral and blossom
Palate: Lemon butter, lime flesh and hints of citrus are all pulled together with natural (no added) acid. This creates a balanced and integrated palate weight. 100% Free run with no added fining gives the wine texture and substance without hindering on the pure and delicate flavours that dictated picking in the vineyard
Food Pairing: The schisty minerals, textural weight and thrust of herbiness would see this stunning wine pair perfectly with Pan roasted swordfish with lemon and caperberries sauce
About the wine: This wine is languishily captivating. It shows a length and complexity that continues for some time and will only get better as it ages. In its youth it has a pent up energy with a squeaky clean minerality that will unfold in the years to come. It will cellar for years (if you can wait that long!) 100% free run juice, hand-picked grapes from old vines. No added acid or finings. Gently pressed and fermented slowly in controlled conditions to maintain the fruit purity. As always; a truly exceptional expression of Clare Valley Riesling from this very special site.
