Holland Creek Riesling
2018 Holland Creek Riesling
Adelaide Hills Single Vineyard, Limited Release
Paracombe Holland Creek Riesling is a single vineyard release. Paul and Kathy Drogemuller selected the Galipo family vineyard at Cudlee Creek as a specialist site for this wine.
The vineyard is located on a picturesque northerly aspect overlooking Holland Creek and the River Torrens in heart of the Adelaide Hills.
The vineyard slopes are well drained deep red earth over shale. Bathed in warming sunshine during the day, the temperature drops to cracking cold at night resulting in perfect conditions to produce this stylish wine.
The grapes for this wine were harvested on the 18th of March 2017. Yields from the 2017 were extremely low, fruit quality however was exceptional. A cooler Summer and mild Autumn gave ideal ripening conditions which in turn produced fruit to make wonderful wine with highly perfumed aromatics and superb flavour.
The 2017 Holland Creek Riesling is stunning, pristine colour with delicate green hues. The wine is fresh and pure with hints of crunchy, granny smith apple and lime laced throughout the bouquet and palate alike.
The bouquet is lively with lifted aromas of fresh citrus, spring blossom and pineapple. The palate delivers clean, graceful flavours of fresh limes, apples and slatey mineral notes with a fresh, clean finish.
Riesling lovers will enjoy this delish style from Paracombe.
