Watervale Riesling is picked from a special part of Jim Barry's Florita vineyard in Watervale. This famous Riesling vineyard usually achieves full ripeness, with high natural acid levels.

“The tiny village of Watervale (population 246), nestled in South Australia’s Clare Valley, is renowned for the quality of its Riesling.”

Watervale Riesling was picked from a special part of Jim Barry's Florita vineyard in Watervale. This famous Riesling vineyard usually achieves full ripeness, with high natural acid levels.

Riesling was again one of the highlights of the 2013 Clare Valley vintage. The Jim Barry Riesling vintage kicked off earlier than usual, at the start of February. Some warm and then cool spells allowed for excellent flavour ripening with good natural acidity. A dry growing season with low disease pressure helped to maintain pristine fruit.

Winemakers had at their disposal leading edge winemaking equipment to allow optimum quality juice to be delivered. Gentle pressing and a rapid move into the fermentation allowed the natural fruit flavours to be preserved.

One of the earliest 2013 Rieslings to be released, the pure Riesling grape characters are captured in this bottle for your enjoyment.

This wine is bright straw yellow in appearance with green tints. It has a fantastic lift of white peach, intense lemon citrus and jasmine, enhanced by hints of fresh nettles and spice.

The palate shows formidable lime, grapefruit and citrus elements with an overall generosity of fruit-based sweetness, supported by a natural acid backbone.

Wine has been flowing in the Clare Valley since 1851 and is an integral part of the culture. It is one of Australia’s most prestigious premium wine regions famous for its Riesling and Shiraz. A tiny area accounting for less than 1.5% of the total Australian production.

With its beautiful rolling hills, ideal winter rainfall and Mediterranean climate, the Clare Valley carries a unique history and winemaking heritage.
