The Riesling grapes were sourced from very old plantings (30 years old) in the cool climate vineyards of the Porongurup Range in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. This riesling beautifully illustrates the steely lime character achieved in the Porongurup region quite distinct from the Frankland River which produces a more generous. textured style.
Only the finest. most pristine. free run juice was used resulting in a wine of outstanding elegance. free from harsh. phenolic character. An exceptionally brilliant. pale. almost steely colour with youthful green tinges. Intense floral. citrus and passionfruit fragrance enhanced by a mineral spicy vibrancy. A seamless palate. with initial flavours of green apple and passionfruit leading to more austere lemons and limes. This wines youthful intensity and fruit driven vibrancy can be enjoyed over the next two years. Cellaring for up to 10 years will be rewarded with the more complex. toastier and textured wine that is a classic aged cool climate Riesling.
