Description

The Story

Now owned by the Fosters Group, Annie's Lane was launched in 1996 and is located at the heritage listed Quelltaler winery in South Australia's Watervale. Dating back to 1863, it is the oldest winery in the Clare Valley and still manages to turn out quality wines, especially for Clare Valley classics Riesling and Shiraz although quality seems to have faded somewhat in recent years.

The Wine

The grapes were crushed and drained during the cool of the night with only the delicate free-run juice retained. After a settling period of 4 to 5 days, these juices were racked to ferment. Following fermentation, all parcels were racked again and then evaluated for the final Annie's Lane blend. Pairs delightfully with freshly shucked oysters, chilli crabs or roasted loin of pork.

  • Halliday rated 94 points - 2010 vintage

“Bright straw-green; flowery lime and lemon blossom and a touch of lime zest; a generous palate filled with juicy citrus fruit; good acidity on the long finish; now or in a decade.”- James Halliday 2010.

Tasting Note: The palate is tight and elegant, with lime flavours dominating throughout. Impressive length and natural acidity will allow for graceful aging.
