Rated #2 of 110 2014 Rieslings by Huon Hooke.
Fresh & fruity in its youth, now developing bottle age the wine displays unique characteristics & distinguished flavours that only age & maturity can provide. This Riesling has been cellared for 8 years before release & shows intense aromas of lemon butter & a distinctive toasty character. The palate is delicately layered showing lime blossom & a wonderful mouth feel that extends to a crisp finish.

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.
If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.
Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!
Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.
Located in the Limestone Coast area of South Australia about 380km South East of Adelaide, near the border of Victoria Coonawarra is a Maritime climate due to it's proximity being only 60km from the ocean. The name translates as 'Honeysuckle' in Aboriginal language.
This region is known for it's elegant red wines derived from a thin lush 'Terra Rossa' rustic-copper coloured strip of soil abundant in iron, silica and other nutrients. This red earth is known to be one of the most notable 'terroir' soils in the world and distinct characteristics are picked up in the fruit. The quality of the grapes, unique Geology and growing conditions create the finest of wines with incredible longevity.
The red land was first harvested in 1890 by John Riddoch which then turned over to the hands of the Redman family who grew Shiraz as their main grape variety. In 1951, Samuel Wynn continued on the legacy by buying the original Riddoch cellars and led a revolution by making conventional table wines rather than the then popular fortified. There are many producers now but Cabernet Sauvignon is what the area is most renowned for in the wine world.
