Clonakilla Riesling Canberra District 2023


Categories: ,

Murrumbateman’s cool, continental climate and decomposed granite soils are perfectly suited to Riesling.  

The 2023 season saw the long tail of La Nina deliver a cool, rain-soaked spring and the latest harvest since 2011.  Genuine summer heat finally arrived in January followed by a (mostly) sunny autumn. The warmth made all the difference.   

Bright floral notes and citrus fruit power here.  Drink now or cellar for up to 20 years and watch it develop lime and toast characters with age.
