Overview

When bottle aged, the best cool climate Rieslings assume an Australian wine icon status. We expect the clean acidity and fruit intensity of our 2013 to give it every chance of going the distance for many enjoyable years.

IN THE VINEYARD

The very cool growing season was the dominant influence, It generated intense limey characterstics seen in traditional Riesling’s.

IN THE WINERY

The use of a mix of three specially selected yeast strains has given a fragrant fruitiness and complexity not often seen in Rieslings. The pressed juice is settled overnight then cold fermented to preserve the fresh citrus fruit characters typical of the variety.

Expert Reviews

Other than three cultured yeasts to create greater complexity, standard cool fermentation in stainless steel. Crisp and lively, it has a classic lime/lemon/apple mix of fruits supported by crisp acidity, the palate bone dry. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 31 Mar 2016

Winery Tasting Notes

IN THE GLASS

Light green gold.

ON THE NOSE

Highly aromatic lime, other citrus friends and a hint of apple blossom.

IN THE MOUTH

Elegant yet intense on the palate, wiht some floral notesand a little spice in the middle, but dominated by a pronounced lime aroma with good zingy acid throughout.

The wine is elegant yet its powerful fruit and leaner than normal structure will stand ageing better than more forward years. The flavour of this wine is a reflection of the growing season caputuring beautiful limey fruit flavours. As we find in many years our riesling begin their life in an introverted, shy way. This wine has now begun to speak up out of the glass, a good sign that it is destined for a long life and a chance at greatness.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Domain Day is a unique vineyard situated on a carefully selected site at Mt Crawford, high in the hills at the south eastern extremity of the Barossa Valley. Its altitude of 450 metres and the mix of unusual varieties make it one of the coolest and most interesting vineyards in the Barossa.

Winemaker Robin Day is an industry veteran with almost 80 vintages under his belt over 40 years of winemaking in 12 different countries. His global knowledge and experience has determined the varieties that have been planted for differing reasons. We have several new varieties to Australia that he has worked with internationally (Garganega, Lagrein, Saperavi, Nebbiolo), as well as the more mainstream varieties he has enjoyed

working with throughout most of his career (Riesling, Viognier, Merlot).

Domain Day has been established using state-of-the-art vineyard design protocols based on soil assessment and analysis to give a 'micro-terroir' approach within the broader ambit of the vineyard.
