Sevenhill are a quiet achiever, softly spoken artificers of Clare Valley's finest. Riesling develops so much charm as it grows in the vineyard, that if it's picked at the right time, the wine is virtually made. Riesling's desire to wear her heart on her sleeve still means that she can be sensitive, so the vinification must be compassionate. Amongst the propitious terroirs of Sevenhill, vines yield fruit of refined minerality and savoury edge, the richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, all the team have to do is protect and maintain the character of fruit.
Riesling is planted on four separate vineyard blocks, each with different soils, a combination of silty stone/slate and richer, red loam. The silty stone and slate soils are older and less fertile, they offer ideal chemistry for wine grapes. The vines produce leaner characters, the wines show minerality and a more savoury edge. The richer, red soils are higher in nutrients, so the vines don't have to battle quite so hard. All grapes are gently pressed, taking great care not to allow oxygen to steal the flavour. Juices are kept very cool, inoculated by choice yeasts and fermented to dryness at temperatures around 12C. Individual vineyard blocks are all kept separate until completion and the final assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw colour with a tinge of green. Highly aromatic, waxy orange blossom predominant, nose displays the character and charm of pure, elegant Riesling. The palate is tight and lean, showing prominent citrus flavours followed by a minerally, dry finish, long and crisp.

About Sevenhill Wines
The Jesuits Society of Jesus migrated to Australia from Austria in 1848 seeking a life free from religious and political persecution
They settled at a site called Open Ranges in the beautiful Clare Valley and established Sevenhill, the oldest existing winery in the Clare Valley. Initially the main purpose of the cellars was to provide sacramental wine for religious use and this has been ongoing. Sevenhill Cellars now produce white, red and fortified wines as well as sacramental wine. Sevenhill»
