2020 Shut The Gate Rosie’s Patch Watervale Riesling Clare Valley – Shut The Gate is a small wine producer that’s passionate about single site and best of region grape varieties. While they have lots of different wine batches they’re all tiny quantities and thy don’t put their label on a bottle if it doesn’t make the cut. They call the Clare Valley home and spend the majority of their life there but they also have a foot in the Snowy Mountains NSW chasing cool climate grapes as well, the best of both worlds really.
This Riesling is sourced from the Castine Family vineyard in the southern end of the Watervale sub region of the Clare Valley. Machine harvested late Feb in chilly early morning temps to keep the fruit fresh and to avoid oxidization.
Lifted white flower perfume with fresh tropical flavours. Finishes clean, crisp and dry with lovely length. Just a cracker value Rizza and absolutely delicious with fish and chips down on the beach.
Drink young and fresh or careful cellaring over another 6-8 years will deliver more complexity.
