With all the credentials of an age worthy Riesling this wine will keep well for 8 to 10 years from vintage.
Vineyard Region: Tasmania
Vintage: 2016
Color: The 2016 Riesling is a pale straw with green hues.
Aroma: On the nose it is refreshingly aromatic with strong elements of lime juice and citrus and subtle elements of sweet perfume.
Palate: The palate is concentrated with flavours of zesty lemon and fresh kaffir lime over a backbone of racy acidity that gives an insight into the staying power of this wine.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 12.5%
Peak Drinking: Until 2026
Growing Conditions: Estate grown Riesling fruit from our vineyards in the Tamar Valley of Tasmania. The 2016 vintage was excellent across the board and especially for white varietals.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
Winemaking Notes: The fruit was predominately hand picked and whole-bunch pressed with juice then immediately run-off skins. The clear, racked juice was inoculated with a selected aromatic yeast strain. Ferment was cool, slow and controlled to maximise retention of fruit flavours. It was bottled with an alcohol of 12.5% a TA of 8.7 and a pH of 2.89.

"This is a label that is going places. The wine offers great value, with this riesling benefiting from a little bottle age. The citrus perfume is backed by delicious lemon sorbet flavours and a refreshing acidity. Perfect with whitebait fritters."
