Awards and Accolades
94 Points - Jane Faulkner, Australian Wine Companion "One of the gems in this series: a luscious riesling with texture and layers of flavour without being heavy. Part stainless steel ferment part large oak cask help with that as does a splash of pinot gris, with exacting acidity ensuring this remains vibrant and age-worthy."
2014 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Fermentation in a used 5400l French oak vat, the addition of 2% muscat of alexandria, and the retention of 5gl of residual sugar have all come together seamlessly in a wine with length and real personality; the flavours ripple through citrus, apple and minerally acidity."
From the Winery
We decided to ferment the Lake View fruit on yeast lees in a 5,400 litre oak cask to add layers of interest and structure. While common practice in the Alsace region of France, it is unusual to ferment Riesling on its lees in oak in Australia. However, we do because it helps build complexity and by carefully monitoring the time on lees (just nine weeks) we can create a subtle ‘slippery’ texture and roundness in this wine without the development of any autolytic characters – and we do this to enhance this wine for game.
The Riesling from Upton Run was fermented in stainless steel to retain the freshness of its intense aromatic characters, which complement the more complex and round ones of Lake View perfectly. A small component of Pinot Gris (8 per cent) that was wild fermented in old French oak barrels was blended to add another layer of complexity and depth to the palate of this wine. This is the most exciting Riesling we make. Perfumed, textural and complex it has the qualities to match wild game and the personality to intrigue, delight or divide the most ardent Riesling hounds.
