Sourced from our Polish Hill River vineyard, situated 5km South-East of the Clare township. The vineyard is owned by Rob and Lyn Jaeschke, who purchased the vineyard from Penfolds in 2010. The vineyard is on grey brown loam, over sandy limestone and shale rock. The Riesling vines are approximately 14 years old, planted on 38 year old root stock. With an abundance of natural acidity in the grapes, 2022 makes for an exciting vintage for our iconic “Schatzkammer” Riesling. The bouquet is sweetly scented with aromas of orange blossom, passionfruit, fresh lime and floral bush-honey, which carry through onto the lusciously flavoured palate. This wine is low in alcohol with a finely-tuned balance of succulent residual sweetness and tangy natural acidity. The acid drives the length of the palate to a clean, crisp finish – the ultimate hallmark of the very best examples of this unique style of Riesling.
