A top example of Adelaide Hills riesling, the bouquet offers delicate floral aromas and robust lemon and lime zestiness. Fruit intensity sits comfortably against a tightly structured body, with crisp natural acidity pulling through the long, enjoyable finish.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 90 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Australian Wine Companion "Snappy riesling. Bursting with lemony acidity. Distinctive notes of cracked wheat/yeast combine attractively with floral notes and that keen varietal burst of citrus."
From the Winery
Riesling has a strong affinity for the cooler climes of the World, and it is therefore no surprise that it would produce wines of great character in the Adelaide Hills. Whilst we made the hard decision to graft some of our Riesling vines over to Pinot Noir some years back, we have retained only the most promising clones to produce our Riesling as it’s perhaps the top white pick amongst staff and remains a labour of love. The Riesling crop, whilst miniscule, showed hallmark varietal characters and fine acidity nurtured by the cool nights and warm sunny days. Careful sampling in the vineyard, paying particular attention to flavour development and acid levels, meant the fruit was harvested on the 10th of March when the ideal balance was reached.
