Overview

The growing season was mild, after good winter rains, and timely rains during the growing season. This Riesling comes from young Geisenheim clone vines, with a dripper for stress relief, and 40 year old dry grown vines. Yields were low, and small berries yielded flavour packed juice. This shows in the wine, which is really an expression of the grape flavours.

Winery Profile

Fireblock (formerly Old Station Vineyard) is owned by Bill and Noel Ireland, who purchased the almost-70-year-old Watervale vineyard in 1995. The vines planted in 1926 (3ha of shiraz and 2ha of grenache) are dry-grown, the riesling (1ha) was replanted to the Geisenheim clone in 2008 when town water became available. Watervale Riesling, Old Vine Shiraz and Old Vine Grenache are skilfully contract-made, winning trophies and gold medals at capital city wine shows
