Very pale straw with green tinges The bouquet is a symphony of florals from musky roses to lemon-blossom and oriental lilies, floating above the sweet scents of fresh Meyer Lemons and Kaffir Lime. There are subtle buttery undertones of lime curd and apple pie with custard, creating a rich and invitingly diverse nose. The richly flavoured mid-palate is awash with the flavours of sweet citrus, which belies the structural elegance and slate-like minerality that runs the length of the palate. Following on from the rich and supple mid-palate, this wine is gradually bound in by racy natural acidity which draws through to a crisply refreshing finish. A perfect balance of richness and elegance.
90 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Grant Burge has made this single vineyard wine for years, and it has almost had - vintage-dependent - a particular lime/lemon fusion of flavour, particularly in cool vintages, which '18 wasn't."
Our Thorn Riesling is sourced from Eden Valley region, renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest Riesling styles. The 2018 vintage saw an unusually dry Summer and early Autumn. The low disease pressures associated with dry, warm conditions coupled with the cool night-time temperatures allowed the vines to produce fruits with exceptional character and flavour - vibrant, balanced and lower alcohol styles.
