This 2013 Pauletts Polish Hill River Riesling is a wonderfully flavoursome and expressive example of Clare Valley Riesling that is sure to impress the many fans this wine already has.

"96 Points. Bright straw-green; fragrant/ flowery bouquet, excellent line, length and balance; texture built around crunch acidity" - James Halliday, Wine Companion Magazine, April/ May 2014.

"The wine generally shows quite citrus and lime flavours with a wonderful spine of mineral like acid adding great balance, length and finish. Typically the wines have a wonderful potential to age, normally well over ten years and in doing so show lovely secondary aged characters of toast and honey." - Paulett Wines.

The vineyards are at altitudes of 480-510 metres above sea level with an easterly aspect. Soils tend from shallow red & grey loams over a slatey /blue stone sub strata and occasionally well-structured red clay. Drainage is good to moderate. We have five separate vineyards with ripening and harvest generally occurring mid March through to mid April.

The first run of juice is cold settled and quite clear juice is fermented at an even rate over a 15-20 day period to ensure flavour retention.
