Details

The debate of the 'old world' of wine versus the 'new world' can be a contentious one, but both offer up excellent choices. The excitement in comparing the two worlds comes from seeing how different climates, winemaking and traditions can yield stunningly divergent wines from the same grape variety. Riesling is the perfect variety to exemplify this contrast.


Germany is riesling's spiritual home, while the Clare Valley is a world benchmark for the dry style. From Germany, expect a more luscious riesling, impeccably balanced with acid and intense fruit flavour, whereas from Australia's Clare Valley, expect a dry expression with crisp natural acidity and enticing citrus and mineral notes.
