KNAPPSTEIN ACKLAND VINEYARD WATERVALE RIESLING
The 2015 Knappstein Ackland Vineyard Watervale Riesling is a lively and zesty drop, sharing qualities with Fanny Filgate, the founder of Enterprise Brewery, and the forerunner of Knappstein Enterprise. An enterprising woman, Fanny started the appropriately named brewery in 1878 to offer thirsty copper miners in the Clare Valley refreshing ales. The brewery quickly became a success, eventually closing in 1917, before being reopened as the Knappstein Enterprise Winery in 1969. Today, the Ackland vineyard in Watervale is one of the Clare Valley’s most recognised Riesling vineyards.
