This comes to us from a real hidden gem of a vineyard - a block planted in Watervale way back in 1926 that is famously bone-dry, producing some of the most concentrated fruit around. What that ancient plot has delivered here is a wine that is lightly toasty, with plenty of primary fruit complemented by honeyed softness. A delicious Riesling in great form.
James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Little or no colour change; a lovely Riesling now, starting to develop lime/lemon fruit to push acidity into its all-important support role, leaving spring-day freshness in the aftertaste. Another 3 years of cellaring will see this in full song.
Lemon, lime and floral characters. Typical of a good vintage in Watervale.
