Reliable winter rains followed by a mild and dryish spring let to good flowering and fruit set for our 2015 Riesling. This was followed by excellent ripening conditions with warm days assisting flavour development and cool nights aiding acid retention. The outcome was our earliest vintage on record and certainly one of our best. With this riesling we again have a wine more European in style than Australian. It has a lightness of body; a fine texture, delicate-yet-intense and rich flavours and a lingering palate. The fresh, natural acidity is balanced by a small amount of grape sugar.
Cellar for 10-plus years or drink now by itself or with a wide range of foods from appertisers to entrees, mains, desserts or with cheese. Don't overchill.
