Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling, Clare Valley

Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling, Clare Valley

The Hanlin Hill vineyard was planted in 1968 and is on a west-facing slope on the eastern edge of the Clare Valley. The soils are predominantly red loam over slate, and the vines run up to 550 metres above sea level. This vineyard produces grapes that make very fullflavoured, dry slatey minerally Rieslings. The grapes are harvested by hand, de-stemmed, crushed and chilled before being gently pressed, only the free run juice is used. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and the wine is allowed to cold settle for a month before filtration and bottling. Shows bright floral aromas, citrus peel and orange blossom with a hint of tropical fruit; the palate is lively with a rich lime marmalade character.
