Production information

Producer: Knappstein

Knappstein is one of the biggest names in the Clare Valley, perhaps Australia's most enigmatic wine region. Home to both full-bodied rich reds and lean, lemony Riesling, Clare's split personality takes on a bit of Bordeaux, a bit of Alsace and a dash of the Rhone - all with a distinctive Aussie accent. The Knappstein philosophy is to simply produce the best handcrafted wine and beer possible from the Clare Valley. Located in the heritage listed Enterprise Brewery, established in 1878, Knappstein is steeped in the tradition of the region.

Production note

The wine was made with great attention to detail and sensitivity to capture the purest expression of flavours from the vineyard. The juice was cold settled prior to fermentation, then fermented with neutral yeasts at cool temperatures (12-15°C) to maintain pure fruit clarity and expression. The ferments lasted between 14-20 days, after which the wine was cold stabilised prior to final blending and filtering.
