Fruit was hand-picked from the Warramate 1.2 acre Riesling vineyard planted in 1970. Although not a common variety for the Yarra Valley, this plot of vines consistently delivers highly individual wines. Whole bunch pressing and maturation in stainless steel tank.
This dry Riesling has a subtle varietal aroma of citrus, apple, musk and talc with an underlying complex note of flintiness. A wine of fruit purity, lovely weight and some textural interest.
