Jim Barry 'The Lodge Hill' Dry Riesling
Situated at 480 meters above sea level and situated on the Eastern Ranges of the Clare Valley, the grapes at our Lodge Hill Vineyard are exposed to concentrated bursts of sunlight and cool nights which encourage slower ripening.
This helps deliver beautiful natural acidity and citrus characters that ripen early because of the small crop it produces. Gentle pressing and a rapid move into the fermentation allows the natural fruit flavours to be preserved.
Framed with zippy grapefruit, the nose of the wine is bursting with lime leaf, citrus rind and yellow melons. On the palate, it exhibits classic Clare flavours, including white stone fruit, lime juice, lemon verbena and old fashioned lemonade. It has a plush line throughout with plenty of length and girth.
