Pale in colour with a vibrant green hue. Lifted aromas of citrus blossom, lemon and jasmine flower with a touch of dried herb. Youthfully attractive with lemon and lime zest and fresh green apple. Some dried herb and perfume add complexity to the fine mineral acidity. The backbone has a flinty character and a touch of slate. The natural fruit acidity highlights the wines ability to age gracefully over time.
94 Point Rated - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"It's fabulously styled and elegantly lifted on the nose showing crunchy apple, green rockmelon, lime sorbet and white floral aromas, followed by a finely textured and brilliantly focused palate delivers excellent weight and length. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and poise"
93 Points - Wine Showcase Magazine
"Fresh Nose with lovely floral fragrances. Flavoursome palate showing a touch of residual sugar and good level of acidity"
92 Point Rated - Melbourne International Wine Competition
91 Point Rated - Patrick Eckel Wine Reviewer"A light yellow, with a slightly golden hue in colour. The nose gives myer lemon alongside citrus zest and cut flowers. The palate has a supple mouthfeel with an understated honey character to expansive citrus; acidity comes to the fore to finish, giving fine lines and generosity of length. A well put together wine that is approachable now, but will also reward medium term cellaring."
Stuart Knox - The Real Review
"Very pale-lemon colour. Lime cordial and spearmint candies on the nose. The fruit is quite sweet, some green herb notes give contrast."

The Riesling is sourced from a single vineyard in the cool climate, high altitude region of Eden Valley in the Barossa ranges. The grapes were individually picked out in the vineyards for their exceptional quality and picked separately to the rest of the vineyard. To ensure the grapes were harvested at optimum flavour and acid balance, the ripening of the grapes was monitored with regular berry tasting in the lead up to picking, then harvested in the cool of the night. After crushing and must chilling, the free run juice was drained and clarified with minimum skin contact. This juice was then cool fermented between 13 – 15C with selected yeast to enhance the delicate Riesling flavours. The wine was bottled with a screw cap closure to retain the pristine aromas and flavours.
Ready to be enjoyed now and will have a great lifespan which will enable it to be drunk over the next 10 years for those that enjoy aged style Riesling.
