The Riesling Block was planted in November 2013 and is approximately 2.5 acres and consists of two clone varietals, Pewsey Vale & D2V2. Our first harvest from this block was 2017 and received 96 points - Halliday Wine Companion and 95 points - Winefront.
Our 2018 Riesling, now released, is the second vintage from these young vines. It is showing great complexity with nicely balanced acidity. Head to our online store for more information or to pick up a bottle.
The Wine Front - Mike Bennie
A curious mix of characters here that run from sweet-sour fruit characters to lightly soapy sort of things and a lick of light butteriness – yet there’s definitive riesling vibes going on. Dive in, I say. More width and amplitude of flavour than most riesling, more depth in perfume. I’d say this will polarise riesling stalwarts, but I dig it.

The region is well known for Riesling with Granite Hills the exemplar and a number of fine releases coming from Zig Zag Road and Hunter-Gatherer Vinters over the last couple of vintages.
The wine was produced from estate fruit, basket pressed and aged in old oak. A little residual sugar was kept in the wine but it’s slinked into the background doing its job providing a counterpoint to the wines mineral, taut acidity.
The future looks good for this variety from one of the regions impressive new producers.
