Murrumbateman’s cool, continental climate and decomposed granite soils are perfectly suited to Riesling. The weather leading up to vintage 2019 was marked by lower than average rainfall in winter and spring. Things were just starting to look seriously dry when two rain events in January came to our rescue, delivering 110 mm between them. The grapes were picked in perfect condition and full of intense flavour. Drink now for its razor fine floral, citrus-edged fruit or cellar for up to 15 years and watch it develop lime and toast characters with age. – Tim Kirk

Canberra Riesling can be a very fine thing. Intensity of flavour here is excellent. As is the flow of the wine. As is the finish. There’s a suggestion of fruit sweetness to the mid palate here and it helps to kick it all up a gear. It’s limey and slatey and red apple-y, and it does that delicate-but-intense thing. It’s super.
