Product details

  • Variety

    Riesling
  • One of Australia's top premium producers. This Riesling is made in minute quantities (less than 4000 produced).

    Quartz-green in colour. Crammed with vibrant Cox’s Orange apple and lemon pith notes on the nose, as well as lifted jasmine and crystallised ginger aromatics. The palate’s bright acidity and river stone flavours are balanced with a gentle fruit sweetness and talc-like texture.

Press ReviewPress

This is another very grand wine indeed. With none of the urgency of some of the entry-level Aussie Rieslings this is a diva with sultry lemon sherbet fruit and just the merest hint of juiciness on the finish. Usually drama in Riesling is derived from the tang on acidity on the finish. In Sam’s wine she allows the fruit itself to impart all of the mystery and complexity and then gives you just a little more, in the way of a curtain call, when you expect it all to come to an end. This is a scintillating wine.

Winemaking

Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Fermented with wild indigenous yeast. Less stirring once a week. Fermentation arrested before complete dryness achieved.

Food recommendation

A refreshing aperitif style which would work well with sauteed scallops.
