Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 97 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Estate-grown 40yo vines, and only free-run juice, gives the wine a flying start. Its intensity is exceptional, driving along the palate with high speed, the Bickford's lime juice flavours running unabated through the finish and well into the lingering aftertaste. An exceptional wine."
2013 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "The bouquet is yet to develop intensity, but the palate is a different beast, its cascade of lime, lemon leaf and mineral immediately occupying every corner of the mouth. A classic each way proposition: drink now, and think Chinese, or be patient for a decade or more, and think Alsace pork."
From the Winery
The Riesling from our estate grown fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning in late February. The free run juice of each parcel is fermented separately. The resulting wine is a fine tuned blend created from parcels including the original planting of 1971, through to a block of Geisenheim clone, planted in 2003.
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development
