“Riesling, the shy and unassuming grape”
Because good wine doesn't have to scream its virtues. Sometimes shyness, delicacy and restraint are the signposts that lead to inner beauty.

The striking, varied label designs shouldn’t distract you, for neither it nor the flowery, blossom-accented bouquet give warning of the exceptionally intense and long palate that follows, lime and lemon juice drawing saliva from the mouth, and lingering into the finish and aftertaste. Great now or later. Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (30/AUG/2010)
Winery Tasting Notes
Clean and limey, yet gentle and soft. Extremely approachable in its youth and the gentle floral and citrus nuances supply complexity to the soft texture and acid backbone.
Chilli mussels, pan fried snapper with lemon.
Fruit was harvested at night and gently de-stemmed. Only the free run portion of the juice was used for this wine. Natural yeasts combined with, long cool fermentation at 10-12oC ensured that the essence of the fruit was captured.
2010 was a cool dry harvest with low to moderate yields. The resulting wines have very intense flavours and soft, gentle acidity.
