Wakefield Riesling 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Situated in the heart of South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, Wakefield has become one of Australia’s best loved and most trusted wineries. The tale of Wakefield's wine-making goes back a few years - three generations in fact, and all began with Bill Taylor Senior, and his love of a certain Bordeaux wine. Originally wine merchants in Sydney, a passion for wine was all part of being a Taylor, and in particular, for the famous French Clarets such as Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux’s Medoc region. It was this long held fascination for these wines which inspired the family’s foray into winemaking, and provides the inspiration and winemaking philosophy behind all Wakefield's winemaking today - to produce premium wines of exceptional and comparable quality in Australia. The wine first has restrained floral aromas of orange blossom and rose petal and then later strong regional and varietal aromas of lime zest appear. On release, the wine has a fresh lemon-lime flavoured palate with a crisp acid backbone. The finish has a subtle, pleasing minerally character. Try it with lime and chilli chicken stirfry or the most sublime match is with fresh, natural oysters.
