Riesling is subtle yellow in color, displaying delicate lifted aromas of lime blossom and citrus fruits. Lemon, lime and hints of passion fruit are in abundance. The palate is focused, pure and linear with a delicious juicy finish. Elegant and intense with a touch of minerality and refreshing acidity.
Awards and Accolades
95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "The grapes were grown on the relatively young Ahrens Vineyard. Its vibrant palate, with citrus fruit nestling in a trellis of natural, minerally acidity, promises much for the future, however good it is right now. Lovely wine, with a great aftertaste."
2013 Vintage: 94 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "The large gold sticker celebrating its win as Australian Producer of the Year at the IWS Competition in London 2010 is starting to look like medals won in the 19th century on various products. This is a great drink-now proposition, full of juicy lime flavours balanced by crisp acidity. One of the best to come under this label for some years."
From the Winery
Grand Barossa Riesling draws from the Barossa region’s Germanic history. Barossa (often known as being synonymous with Shiraz) is once again turning heads for its exceptional Riesling. Refreshing, dry and displaying all the delicacy, elegance and finesse of this noble variety, 40% of this wine comes from old vines planted on the Château Tanunda Estate in the 1920s. Château Tanunda, established in 1890 in the heart of the Barossa Valley, is Australia’s oldest and grandest château. As the cornerstone of the Barossan wine industry, this first-growth château is the site of the first vines planted in the Barossa Valley in 1845 and is today, privately owned by the Geber family.
