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.

The 2018 Pauletts Polish Hill Clare Valley River Riesling is another 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, we suggest stashing some away in the cellar and observing it evolve over the next decade.

Reviews of the 2017 vintage included below;

"95 Points. From a winery with a great track record of, reflecting the ability of the Polish Hill River to produce wines with more focus, length and intensity than much of the Clare Valley proper. Thus is one such Polish Hill to stand tall, with its intense unsweetened lime and grapefruit flavours, the best still to come. Screwcap. 12.8% alc. To 2027. $24" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

"Dry-grown riesling from a famed sub-region of the Clare Valley. Intensity is up this year. The flavour strikes from the first sip. Intense lime and mineral, perhaps some gunmetal, perhaps some lime leaf. There’s a vague kind of chalky spritzy character too, and it’s a positive. A lovely young riesling. Rated: 91 Points Tasted: Dec17 Alcohol: 12.8% Price: $24 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2017 - 2024+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

The 2017 ‐ 2018 growing season was a contrast to the 2016 ‐ 2017 growing season. Reduced soil moisture led to reduced yields but provided periods of mild vine stress and high quality fruit. At Paulett Wines we do not irrigate the vines and their root structure has developed to withstand irregular rainfall, heat waves and drought conditions superior to irrigated vineyards.
