Cooter & Cooter Riesling 2017

$23.00

Such a fresh youngster Riesling from Clare Valley. This smells of bright green apples and zippy lime/citrussy zest & white flowers. The palate zips along from start to finish with lemon/lime, pithy grapefruit and green apples. Quintessential Clare Valley Riesling from these guys!

‘Quartz-green. Ripe lemon, wet stone and talc morphing into custard apple with yeasty complexity. There’s both generosity of flavour and saline texture, and a citric acidity on the finish maintaining the line and length of the wine. Clare all over, and very good value. Drink to 2024.’ 94 points, David Bicknell, WineCompanion.com.au, January 2018.

More Information

Kimberly and James Cooter have been doing this for a long time. No frills stuff, just great value wines that speak of place, classically regional characters from the grapes they think perform best in each region. Shiraz from McLaren Vale, Riesling from Clare…you get the idea!

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.
