Region

Clare Valley, SA

Wine

making notes

The distinctive regional style of the Clare Valley has made it a benchmark for Australian Riesling for decades. Allegiance Wines has sourced this premium parcel of Riesling.  This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers & winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage.  Cellar potential of 2-4 years.

Colour

A vibrant pale straw.

Nose

The bouquet has lifted aromas of freshly squeezed lime juice with hints of orange blossom.

Palate

The palate is fresh, bright and lively bursting with green apple, citrus and mineral acidity.  Great length and a very flavoursome finish.

Dedication

True Friendships Are Their Own Reward  In early 1988, as a young man from Ballina (NSW), I moved into Philip Baxter College at the University of New South Wales.  The intention was further education and a degree – result however was great experiences, expansion of horizons and life long friendships.  I’m so grateful for the impact of this time on my life, learning and the people who have shared my life since.

Reviews

94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Refined and elegantly expressed, the bouquet shows nectarine, lemon peel, apple blossom and wet limestone characters. The palate is equally exquisite, displaying excellent focus and weight, backed by pristine fruit flavours and bright acidity, finishing superbly long and mouth-watering. At its best: 2020 to 2028. 
93 points – Patrick Eckel, Wine Reviewer  2018 is an impressive year for Riesling, with this release from Allegiance a real surprise especially when you can find it on special. The wine itself is more about jasmine and cut flowers than citrus, but provides a nose that you could smell all night. There are Beautiful lines with a flowing citrus acidity that is lithe but impactful; A continuation of the Jasmine notes are joined by ripe granny smith and lime tones to finish. Optimal Drinking 2019 – 2028.

92 points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review  Bright, fresh, clean and pure as the driven snow to sniff. Lovely lemon and citrus aromas with a little creamy yeastiness; later, an unmistakeable aroma of dried thyme. The palate is refined, delicate yet quite intense, with real purity, clarity and freshness. Drink 2018 to 2028. Top Value.

91 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Crystal clear like fresh spring water with hints of green, star bright and enticing. A subtle nose with citrus hints and some nutty tones, complex and enjoyable. Clean with a slight oiliness on the palate, with active lime acid balanced with clean citrus fruits and passionfruit, good length at the end with potential to age 5 + years.
