PENNA LANE – CLARE VALLEY, SA
Penna Lane’s winemaker, Peter Treloar, has a connection with the Clare wine region that began five generations ago. In 1865 Peter’s ancestor, Francis Treloar, acquired land in Watervale and planted the first vines in the area which became known as Springvale. The Penna Lane vines were planted from 1996 to 1998 . The vineyard is recognised as one of the best in the Clare Valley. Growing at an elevation of approximately 450 metres, the grapes benefit from a long, slow ripening period, which intensifies their flavour. Mostly dry grown, the vines are watered only during periods of extreme dryness.
Watervale Riesling 2020
The rich red loam soils of Block G1, at the Koerner family’s Gullyview Vineyard Leasingham, within the sub-region of Watervale, have been producing renowned, award-winning wines for more than forty years.
The Penna Lane Watervale Riesling is true to the style of this famous Riesling region, offering both generous fruit flavours and a fine acid profile.
The wine can be enjoyed whilst young and fresh and it will also develop further with cellaring.
