Made from our Estate Riesling vines planted in 1973, the fruit-bearing canes were cut when the flavours in the grapes were at their optimum. The bunches were then left out hanging on the vines to dehydrate for about 3 weeks, thus concentrating the sugar (17.0 Be°), acid and flavour.

Shows some toasty development, lime juice, maybe some thyme-like and floral perfume. It’s slick and concentrated with sugary delivery of limey Riesling flavour, pear and spice. Honey and lime roll on the finish, and while there’s a bit of complexity there, it’s not exactly kaleidoscopic. Good though, especially with lighter, fresher desserts. Rating 90 - Drink by 2019, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (FEB/2016).
Winery Tasting Notes
Golden straw in colour.
The nose has a floral citrus blossom lift with fruit characters of lemon, lime, pear and apple, complemented by barrel and bottle-aged characters of honey, almond and nougat.
The palate is juicy sweet and smooth, featuring flavours of glazed pear and citrus, creamed honey and nuances of marmalade like bitterness finishing with a crisp clean mouth feel.
Enjoy now and for the next 5 to 8 years.
Try with an exotic fruit platter or drizzled over your favourite ice cream.
