GCV Premium Riesling

From the oldest block ofRiesling vines on the vineyard.

The GCV Premium Riesling comes from the oldest block of Riesling vines on the vineyard. Our aim is to make something that is more textural than the Celtic Farm, not relying totally on acidity to give length and drive to the wine.

Pale green in appearance with typical Clare Valley Riesling characters of lemon, lime and apple plus some bath salts/talc elements also on display as well. The palate is fresh, crisp and dry; the concentrated flavours and balanced acidity works in conjunction with the long, textural finish. Try with Gruyere cheese.
