Producer: RockBare - JACKSON WINE
Vintage: 2018
Production Area: Watervale, Clare Valley. We source a little fruit from two blocks within the Slate Creek Vineyard, just North of the Watervale township in the Clare Valley. One block runs East-West, contouring a dam line on the vineyard, and the other block, is slightly higher on the property running a NE-SW row orientation. These two blocks have slightly different characteristics which, when blended, give rise to a nice complexity.
Type: White Table Wine
Alcohol: 12.5%

Color

Pale straw, with a light green hue.

Grape Varieties

Grape %
Riesling 100

Aroma

Our Watervale Riesling is bright and fragrant, with classic fresh cut lime & lemongrass notes, alongside a subtle hint of wet slate.

Taste

Floral and refreshing , blossom and zest of lime dominate the palate, with secondary notes, akin to the pastry case of a lemon tart. This is derived from the lees contact and helps to complex and balance the mid palate. The wine is crisp and dry, with a beautiful zing of grapefruit like acidity to its’ finish.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking well now, but can hold through 2026.

Food Matching

A big bucket of king prawns whilst sitting on the coastline, or perhaps a lovely rich Thai beef curry.

Vinification

We were up bright and early on the 3rd March to harvest the grapes in the cooler part of the morning, and deliver them for pressing at a winery just down the road. This practice ensures freshness upon delivery and avoids any unnecessary pickup of phenolics from the skins. The juice is clarified, and then fermented in stainless steel at a nice cool temperature to ensure a lovely long, even ferment.

Aging

The wine is then left on yeast lees, and stirred often over 4 months to build texture on the palate before bottling.
