The Prancing Pony, came from the polo horses that my Grandfather and Uncle would ride in the polo matches. They were farm horses during the week but on the weekend they became prancing ponies. The horses were always beautifully preened for competition, with their manes roached and tails braided so that there is no danger of being tangled in the mallet.
Like a prancing pony this Clare Valley Riesling is elegant and zesty. The grapes were sourced from a single vineyard in the cooler sub region of the Polish Hill River in the Clare Valley. A mild long growing season in 2021 produced a lovely balanced wine with depth of grapefruit and lime and slate characters all beautifully balanced by bright acidity to finish.
