2021 Ministry of Clouds Riesling


Region: Clare Valley

Viticulture: Conventional

Winemaker: Bernice Ong and Julian Forwood

Winery Established Date: 2013

From the coolest growing season since 2002, flavour developed slowly over time with a distinctly delicate but intense character. Low sugar levels, coupled with healthy natural acids led to lifted floral notes, kaffir lime, freshly squeezed lemon juice, grapefruit pith, bath salts, and underlying talc. Classic citrus notes are complimented by the mouth-watering chalky and mineral texture on the palate, finishing with a fine and taut acid line.

Sommeliers Recommendation:

This is a great example of what high quality Clare Valley Riesling can be. Lovely and elegant with a crisp finish and clean finish. This is the perfect wine for your oysters & rizzo combination or to be enjoyed with  your favourite Asian noodle dish.

A partnership in every sense of the word, and with an experience in the wine industry working for renowned Australian wineries the likes of Wirra Wirra, Woodstock, Mountadam, Yalumba and Moët Hennessy, in 2012 the pair decided to take fate into their own hands. An idea conceived with the support of extraordinary friends saw the pair leave their jobs and chance fate on a beguiling, exhilarating obsession that would take them from McLaren Vale for their reds, to Clare and Tasmania for their whites. An entity of opposites – methodical and organic, thoughtful and brash, East and West, yin to yang – this is an amalgam of style and soul, and the reflection of a shared vision for the future. Launching in late 2013, all six wines from their first release rated between 94 and 97 points in James Halliday’s 2015 Wine Companion, with Halliday also featuring Ministry of Clouds in his ‘Top 10 New Wineries’ list. Since then, the label has enjoyed organic growth, with Ministry of Clouds’ wines featured in many of the great eating houses around the country, as well as internationally in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
