Our Mt Barker Riesling is all from our favourite blocks on the Langton vineyard, just a few hundred metres from the winery. It was the earliest vintage on record due to the warm dry season as well as the lower than average crop levels. Picked at night to take advantage of our cool overnight temperatures, only the free run juice is used and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the delicate fruit characters.
Bright and clear with a light gold tinge.
Beautifully aromatic, our 2020 vintage is more floral than previous with attractive characters of honeysuckle and lemon blossom as well as the citrusy characters so typical of cool climate Riesling.
This is a well flavoured dry Riesling that is still fine and delicate. It has a good depth of fresh, citrusy fruit flavours and sweet, lemon sherbet characters. It is well set and well balanced with excellent length of flavour. The delicious, tangy acidity has a mouth-watering characteristic and contributes to its beautifully clean, crisp finish.
Delicious now, this would make a terrific aperitif or cellar for a few years for some gorgeous bottle age complexity, up to ~8 years.
