2016 Watervale Riesling
From the outset, producing a Riesling from Australia’s best Riesling region was on the list of icon wines to be pursued by winemaker Ben Riggs. Harvesting fruit from the Churinga vineyard (Kate’s Block) at Watervale (Clare Valley) was an opportunity not to be missed.
From the cooler sub-region of Watervale, south of Clare, the Rieslings are crisp, tangy and delicate and this example is no exception. A true expression of vineyards and vintage, Mr. Riggs Watervale Riesling 2016 represents precisely place and time.
