2016 Watervale Riesling is now Available

As the third generation of the Barry winemaking family, we now hold the keys to this boutique winery. Riesling is the Clare Valley's signature variety and this is our ninth vintage from clos Clare's Riesling patch, adjoining the historic 'Florita' vineyard in Watervale. The 46-year-old dry grown vines were hand-harvested on the 21st of Feburary and taken to The Wilson Vineyard at Polish Hill River, where they were chilled for 24 hours prior to whole bunch pressing and vinification.

This 2016 Watervale Riesling is a handmade wine that shows poise, elegance ad character, which is indicative of this vineyard. The nose displays delicate aromas of lemons and limes, which carry through onto the palate. The tightly coiled palate shows great balance between citrus fruit and the hallmark acidity of the 2016 vintage. After such a successful harvest, we invite you to share in this handcrafted wine.
