The Wilson family established its vineyard at Polish Hill River in 1974, in the ensuing years it has established a reputation as one of the finest exponents of the ever-popular Clare Valley Riesling. Wilson's DJW Riesling always delivers a high quality example of a single-vineyard, hand-harvested Clare Valley Riesling. The 2017 Wilson DJW Riesling has already attracted plenty of attention on the back of star performances at both the 2017 Canberra Riesling Challenge and 2017 Clare Valley Wine Show.

"96 Points. Hand-picked, chilled to 2 degrees C, whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented, gold medals Canberra Riesling Challenge '17, Brother John May Trophy for Wine of Provenance Clare Valley Wine Show '17 (with the '06 an '10). An enduring marriage between the small patch on the 20yo estate vineyard that is succoured by a subsoil winter stream of water, vine vigour and bunch weights not impinging on the power of the Polish Hill River district. It has a sour lemon sherbet flavour that is mouthwatering and very long. Drink By: 2037 Price: $24.00 Date Tasted: 07 Dec 2017 Alcohol: 12.5%" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

The DJW vineyard of 3,500 vines produce fruit with a vibrant juicy fruit (like the chewing gum) character in addition to bright citrus flavours.

Hand picked at peak ripeness the DJW grapes are chilled in our winery cold rooms before whole bunch pressing takes place in our small 30 year old Diemme press.

The DJW Riesling presents exceptional value for a 100% hand harvested single vineyard Polish Hill River riesling with an impressive track record.
