Trophy – Reserve Champion of Show
Trophy – Best 2016 vintage of Show
Trophy – Best Riesling of Show
2017 Tasmanian Wine Show
100% Riesling from their Estate Vineyards located in the Tamar Valley and on the east coast. The 2016 vintage was excellent across the board with low yields and quality.
Juice was run off skins immediately after pressing and then cold-settled. The wine was fermented in tank under strict temperature control to maximise the integrity and impact of the vibrant fruit flavours. It was bottled with and alcohol of 12.0% a T.A. of 8.3 g/l and a pH of 3.0.
“Won three trophies at the Tasmanian Wine Show ’17 thanks to its mix of extreme purity, intensity and length. Its balance and its aftertaste of lime, Granny Smith apple and lemon follows with the inevitability of day into night. It has limitless longevity, but I’ll settle for 30 years.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
