$40.00 inc. GST

Wonderfully fragrant with citrus blossum and lime juice aromas. Layers of stonefruit, lime cordial and green apple flavours.
Vintage notes 
Produced from our estate-grown Riesling grapes planted in 1978. 2020 was a difficult vintage, however, this variety was one of the few that pulled through. Yields in 2020 were heavily reduced by the extended drought and the smoke from bushfires in 2019/20 eliminated most of our crop. However, the levels of smoke taint in this fruit were low and we researched and used some careful winemaking techniques identified by the Australian Wine Research Institute to eliminate any remaining taint. Even so before deciding to bottle the wine we made sure to submit it to a panel of winemakers in the region trained by the AWRI to detect smoke taint and in a blind tasting they were not able to detect any trace of taint. The wine had minimal skin contact and only free run juice was used not pressings. This results in low juice yields and is an expensive exercise but the quality of the juice is outstanding. The resulting wine exceeded all of our expectations and has been our silver lining in 2020.
