Named after the fact the vineyard spends a lot of its time in the clouds, the 2019 Clouds is a wine with near-perfect balance in our humble opinion. It has taken a few years to get to this point as it can be extremely difficult to get the fruit perfectly ripe before the rain or birds get the better of us. The small yield and warmer year in 2019 brought the ripening forward and the grapes were picked in March for the first time ever. Funnily enough, it was also the first year we managed to get it through fermentation before Christmas. I think that these various factors have created a wine with much more purity in 2019 than previous releases yet the short time on skins still gives the wine a hint of texture and that classic lemon sherbet we see in Adelaide Hills Riesling. – Gentle Folk
