Region

Clare Valley is one of Australia`s oldest wine regions and is probably best known for its Riesling wines. Polish Hill River is a sub-region one and a half hours drive north from Adelaide. Named after the Polish settlers of the mid 1800s, the climate is ideal for premium grape growing with a combination of consistently good winter rains, hot summers tempered by cool nights and a long ripening period.

Producer

The name Polish River comes from the Polish settlers who came to the area in the early 1850s escaping religious persecution. Pauletts reputation for producing wines of finesse, elegance and intensity is justly deserved with consistent skill and care from vintage to vintage. Neil Paulett graduated from the Roseworthy oenology course in the early 1970s and spent a further ten years honing his winemaking skills at Penfolds before buying his own property in the Clare Valley. Located some 90 minutes north of Adelaide,this lovely property now extends to 150 hectares with 47 planted with vines. Since the first vintage in 1983 there have been many accolades both at home and internationally. These wines are a true reflection of the region and are of outstanding quality.
Tasting Notes
This unusual sparkling Clare Valley Riesling has a bright lemon colour with citrus and yeasty, biscuitty aromas with a persistant and fine mousse. The palate offers rich and lively mouthfilling flavours of typical zesty lime, pineapple, floral and honey flavours, perfectly balanced with a dry, refreshing natural acidity.
Food
An excellent aperitif and wine for enjoying al fresco, but will also prove a great accompaniment to rich seafood like lobster or scallops, artichokes or truffle infused risottos.
