The 2010 Watervale Riesling shows fresh lifted aromatics: lime-blossom with a touch of pineapple and a delightful “wet sand” character.

From very subtle seafood to all types of spicy foods.

Cellaring Potential

Ready for drinking now or cellaring from 5 - 10 years at least.

Winemaking Notes

Made entirely from fruit grown in our vineyard at Watervale. Made in the very traditional, low intervention style that we have used for the last 30 years. This is a 50+ year old, dry grown vineyard, hand pruned and hand picked. No artificial fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides have been used growing these grapes. Hand harvested fruit treated very carefully in the winery with only free-runjuice used.
