Tasting Notes

Clare Valley

“Unlike Australia’s bigger wine regions, most of the wineries in the Clare Valley are on a boutique scale – the person serving you at the cellar door may well be a family member!”

Riesling  

Vineyard Polish Hill River

The property at Polish Hill River has expanded from the initial 47 hectares to 147 hectares and the on-going vineyard development now sees 25 hectares under vine. There is a substantial portion of Shiraz and Cabernet vines over 70 years of age and Riesling of 35 years and this their treasured resource makes up the back bone of the super premium red and white, the Andreas Shiraz and Antonina Riesling (Shiraz not produced every year, & Riesling yet to be produced) after these original settler family members. This connection with the past is felt very strongly and Neil and Alison understand and embrace the challenge of being custodians of the land for future generations. Son Matthew is now the Vineyard Manager and his ability to nurture both old vines and new is paying dividends. The exceptional quality of fruit produced is raising the standard of the wines even further.
