Riesling and the Clare Valley are the ultimate white wine collaboration.
Tongue-tingling, citrus-flavoured refreshment guaranteed. Drink it now, cellar it for a special anniversary. Put in it on a pedestal, because around the world that’s exactly what all the experts do – the region and variety are recognised globally as one of Australia’s most vibrant wine styles.
The Clare Valley’s reputation for fine wine covers the spectrum of traditional varieties to exciting contemporary styles. Koonowla’s beautifully renovated cellar door overlooks the stunning homestead gardens and rolling vineyards adjacent to the property. Since the property’s establishment in 1896, each custodian has added something unique to the Koonowla story.
The historic cellar door and stunning event spaces are our family’s history in the making.
Sourced from our two sustainably grown vineyards in the Auburn district, each with distinctive characteristics that combine to create a superb Clare Valley style, crisp, vibrant yet full of amazing flavour.
Our riesling is not just about immediate refreshment and palate excitement. It also reveals an inspired sophistication in its minerally textures and lip-smacking palate feels.
This only comes from the gentlest of winemaking techniques, starting with handpicked fruit, followed by minimal intervention in the winery and a focus on crafting the most regionally expressive wine possible.
You want purity in your wine? Taste our riesling and you’ll discover it sip after sip after sip.
