The Wine

 

Sourced from two tiny parcels in prime Riesling country, with its signature red dirt over limestone.

Hand-picked in the cool of the night to help ensure a slow start to fermentation. De-stemmed, then gently pressed, keeping the pressings separate. A cool ferment of 12 degrees was maintained over 16 days.

Freshly squeezed Tahitian lime, lemon rind and a hint of rose petal perfume with a little textural grip on the palate. Picked early to retain loads of natural, crunchy acid. Finishing long with refreshing tart green apple. Cooter & Cooter

 Zestful, yet fine, epitomising what dry Watervale Riesling’s all about!

About the Wine Maker 

Cooter & Cooter is a family business and the logo reflects the connection between the generations of winemakers. The cursive script has been used by various Cooter businesses since 1847.

In 1992 Colin Cooter created Lengs & Cooter with Karel Lengs and in 2012 Colin’s son James established Cooter & Cooter with his wife Kimberly. A winemaker herself, Kimberly began learning her craft under the tutelage of her father, veteran McLaren Vale winemaker Walter Clappis. Walter is best known for his much celebrated time running Ingoldby Wines and more recently, The Hedonist Wines.

In 2005 James and Kimberly spent a year working in California’s Sonoma Valley then, invigorated by their experience, they returned to Australia to continue making wine at The Hedonist. Finally in 2012, now with over 20 vintages between them, they purchased their own vineyard at Whites Valley near Willunga in McLaren Vale. The vineyard, with views to the coast just a few kilometres away, features Grenache vines planted in the 1950s, along with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in 1996.
