Description
 
The husband and wife team of Brendan and Laura Carter are the minds behind this relatively new wine label that is based in the Adelaide Hills but draws its fruit from as far away as the Riverland and Clare Valley. Fiano and Nero d'Avola come from the Riverland, where the Carters say they can achieve economically viable crops from those varieties without much (if any) irrigation. The Piemontese varieties come from the Polish Hill River section of Clare Valley, the Nebbiolo from a vineyard originally planted by Penfolds in 1990. These are fun, engaging wines meant to be consumed in their youth, with the focus largely on fruit quality.

Lovely briney, vermouth-esque aromatics, plenty of wormwood and green olive under Riversand’s trademark whiffs of nectarine and a little grilled almond too. The slick, oily mouthfeel is there as always, but with a bit more check and balance this year. With the Riverland, it’s pretty easy for this wine to be fruit dominant, but even 2021 threw perfect balance the Riverland’s way. A lovely lemon juice-riddled salty acid line, before rolling into a wholemeal, toasty complexity. As refined an example of this wine as we’ve seen yet.
