How to say it

Petaloomah Reezling

Product guide note

This is a dry wine made from Riesling grapes grown in Petaluma’s Hanlin Hill vineyard in the Clare Valley. The Clare Valley is regarded as one of the best places to grow Riesling in Australia. It has concentrated and refreshing aromas of limes with floral hints and crisp green apple flavours with honey and mineral notes.

Production information

Producer: Petaluma

Petaluma had one aim when it was founded in the late 1970s, to create the best possible wines from South Australia. Seeking out the finest vineyard sites rather than taking a one-site-fits-all approach to its grapes. Naturally, the search for a Cabernet vineyard took Petaluma to the Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra. Similarly, the quest for a Riesling site led the team to the Clare Valley. Petaluma pioneered production in the Adelaide Hills and the Piccadilly Valley, which provide Chardonnay of great purity and concentration, including the legendary Tiers Vineyard Chardonnay.

Production note
