The 2019 Riesling is a fine and delicate wine with lovely aromatics and a minerally/slatey palate. The nose displays aromas of lime leaf and jasmine with some spiced apple characters, whilst the palate shows mineral characteristics with fantastic fruit purity and light, flinty acidity. All fruit for this wine was sourced from our Estate vineyard at Rowella. Our vineyard is planted to 3 (unknown) clones of Riesling. One more mineral and citrus, one more floral and aromatic, and the other a bit between the two. This results in a beautiful flinty style of Riesling with lifted floral aromatics and a strong citrus backbone. To achieve this, we harvested the fruit at around 11.5 Baume, pressed to tank, racked and then cool fermented the juice with inoculated yeast. The wine was then lightly fined and filtered and bottled as soon as possible to maintain maximum freshness and aromatics.

The perfumed, flowery bouquet leads into a mouthwatering blast of citrus sorbet and flinty acidity. A wine that underlines the belief that Tasmanian riesling and pinot noir are the two best varietal wines of the island. - James Halliday 1/8/2020
