When Dave and Diana Palmer left the UK, it was supposed to be a three-year stint in Papua New Guinea, where Dave had found a job. Six years later, work took them to Canberra until, three years further on, Dave resigned to set up his own business.
When they heard that this winery was up for sale they sold the house and the sports car, packed up the kids and the cat, and moved to South Australia, pouncing on the opportunity to own this prime piece of vineyard territory. This, their Riesling, comes from vines established in the 1980's in the cool Clare valley.
The nose has an intense aromatic lift of musk, ginger spice and fresh Tahitian lime juice. The palate is focused, with a lovely backbone of natural acidity that supports a natural fruit sweetness with flavours of mango, red grapefruit and kumquats coming through. The wine demonstrates fantastic line and length and has a zesty dry finish.
