Ridgecrop Estate 2010 Watervale Riesling

I've addressed this issue before.
There are some extraordinary bargains to be had in the unlabelled wine market - and I'm not talking about the ubiquitous under $5 cleanskin
offering. I'm far more interested [and I know you are too] in $30 - $20 quality wines that we can offer for half that price. We're supplying a lot of
these nowadays to restaurants and pubs who want to have their own labels on a range of wines.

Our latest find is a 2010 Clare Valley from Watervale - the riesling heartland of the Valley. It's a beauty on the citrus side of the spectrum rather than minerality. It's deliciously dry, fresh and lively and a perfect alternative to sauvignon blanc.

Once upon a time we all used to say how undervalued rieslings were. Not any more so this is a rare offering of such quality at such a low price.

Our Price: $10 per bottle by the dozen
