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.
Our Thorn Riesling is sourced from Eden Valley region, renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest Riesling styles. 2019 was a challenging vintage with a hot, dry growing season. These hot drought conditions eliminated excessive vigor and disease problems, and resulted in lower than average Crops. Summer and early autumn were unusually dry, requiring supplemental irrigation to all vineyard sites. The low disease pressures associated with dry, warm conditions coupled with the cool night-time temperatures allowed the vines to produce fruit with exceptional character and flavour while being harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness, generally producing vibrant, balanced, lower alcohol styles.
