FROM THE WINERY:
Like many of Australia’s renowned wine regions, Clare Valley was founded by people with two important characteristics: “The vision to see what could be and the passion to make it happen”. Pioneer Road is testimony to those who made the journey.
Riesling from a single vineyard in the Clare Valley has been picked during the cool valley night to help
preserve the crisp fruit freshness and natural acidity.
This Riesling combines lifted aromas of citrus fruits, floral notes and lychee undertones with crisp lemon
and lime flavours, producing a balanced wine with complexity and length.
Enjoy now, on it's own or with your favourite seafood or Thai dish.
