2017 Warramate Riesling


Vineyard: 47 year old dry grown vineyard.

Variety: Riesling.

Winemaking: Fruit was hand-picked from the Warramate 1.2 acre Riesling vineyard planted in 1970. Although not a common variety for the Yarra Valley, this plot of vines consistently delivers highly individual wines. Whole bunch pressing and maturation in stainless steel tank.

Wine: This dry Riesling has a subtle varietal aroma of citrus, apple, musk and talc with an underlying complex note of flintiness. A wine of fruit purity, lovely weight and some textural interest.

Cellaring: This will serve immediate drinking very well but will benefit from allowing its character and complexity to develop further in the bottle for 3-4 years under suitable cellaring conditions. 89 Points, James Halliday Wine Companion.
