Pauletts Riesling 2014

Pauletts Polish Hill River Riesling 2014

Clare Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    12.5%
Based in the Polish Hill River sub-region of South Australia's Clare Valley, Pauletts has long been regarded as one of Australia's leading Riesling makers; producing a style can be enjoyed young or develop further depth and complexity with several years in the cellar.

This newly released 2014 Pauletts Polish Hill River Riesling is a wonderfully flavoursome and expressive example of Clare Valley Riesling that is sure to please the many fans this wine already has. For those with the patience (and will power) we suggest stashing some away in the cellar and admire it evolve over the next decade.

"Seriously? Only twenty-two bucks for this utterly outstanding, vivid, lime-juicy Clare riesling, guaranteed to quench your thirst, put a smile on your face and beautifully match whatever summery, fishy, food you happen to be eating at the time? Seriously? Ya gotta be kiddin’ me. The mark-up: expect to pay a pretty reasonable $40 to $50 for this wine in even the highest mark-up restaurants - where, let’s face it, you don’t often find wines of such quality at this price point." - Max Allen, The Australian, January 20, 2015.

Availability: In stock

Clare Valley
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.

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.
