Overview

Matriarch and Rogue is simply about great fruit from great vineyards. Marnie Roberts is the winemaker and the family behind the label, with all the wines named for her family, with wine styles matched to the big characters in the Byrne family. No compromise—just amazing fruit, minimal intervention, and making wines which reflect the site, the region, the varieties and the great personalities of Marnie’s family…

This Riesling was named after Marnie’s Pop, this wine shows the character that relates to Rex. Strength, not messed with, pure and strong. This wine was created to show how much winemaking can influence a wine and just how complex and beautiful Riesling can be.

Winery Tasting Notes

Past the wine’s obvious haze, this wine shows crunchy green apple, lime zest and some sherbet. The use of oak and solids gives the wine texture and complexity without being phenolic. Aromatic mandarin blossom and a hint of mineral finish off this interesting and layered wine.
