Description

This wine has lemon pith, lime and orange blossom aromas and flavours, made in the classic Australian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness to balance the fresh natural acidity. It is a pristine wine with generous length of fruit flavour, a true reflection of the stunning 2018 vintage.

Winemaking Notes

This wine is made from Riesling grapes harvested at their peak flavour maturity from vineyards through the central Clare Valley. Some of the vines are over 30 years old. The juice was immediately chilled, separated from skins then clarified and fermented for 14 days. Careful blending and the use of Free-Run juice only ensures continuation of the true Mr Mick style- crisp, pure and fruit driven.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2018 in the Clare Valley saw lower than average rainfall throughout winter and spring, which led to limited subsoil moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Access to water and good irrigation management was critical, allowing canopies to remain healthy and strong. The long warm, sunny conditions of the ripening days and the cool nights has resulted in consistent yields and excellent quality.

Clare Valley riesling, fresh and ready to go.
It’s a juicy, early-drinking style and it’s done pretty well here. Lime and lime blossom characters are the go. It’s aromatic and tasty and there’s not a hiccup in sight.
