KNAPPSTEIN SLATE CREEK VINEYARD WATERVALE RIESLING
Planted in 1974, the Slate Creek vineyard regularly provides fruit with a strong acid profile, a palate of great texture, and voluptuous flavours at the riper end of the Riesling spectrum. With Slate Creek Vineyard Watervale Riesling’s intense lime and grapefruit flavours, you can expect a wine of immense character that challenges what is traditionally the Clare Valley’s archetypal style. In fact this spirit of challenging convention can be seen throughout the entire Knappstein Enterprise brand.
Eighty nine years after producing its last beer, in 2006 Knappstein’s brewing heritage was brought back to life with the opening of a microbrewery. Today the craftsmanship of both the brewers and winemakers is utilised in Knappstein Enterprise creations, flying in the face of the traditional notion of how a winery or brewery should be run. With a focus on premium natural ingredients, this Riesling is a wonderful example of Knappstein’s unconventional yet exceptional ethos.
