Planted in 1968, the Hanlin Hill vineyard is a unique site that follows the natural contours of the Clare Valley landscape. The slate geology, sandy loam soils and Mediterranean climate are perfect for producing the highest quality Rieslings characterised with a backbone of high natural acidity and the intense lime flavours distinctive of Petaluma Riesling.
COLOUR - Pale straw with green hue
