About the Wine
This superb white wine produced by Petaluma is made in the Clare Valley area of South Australia. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark so you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Accolade wines. Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is a delicious wine, made from Shiraz/Syrah grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Mouth-watering, fresh and citrussy, makes fish and seafood dishes shine.
Riesling, a versatile, aromatic grape variety that can be expected to have good acidity, often residual sugar and light in alcohol. It can be made dry or very sweet. Key characteristics are lime and petroleum on the nose, followed by orange, apple, blossom, passion fruit and honey on the palate.
