Late Harvest Riesling 2018

Award Winner

Our Late Harvest Riesling shows the versatility of this wonderful grape. Left out to continue ripening in the warm Barossa autumn, this wine shows classic characters of citrus and orchard fruits supported by crisp, fresh acidity balancing the natural fruit sweetness.

Our single vineyard Riesling is from a cool climate region nestled between 400 and 600 meters above sea level and is part of the Barossa and Mount Lofty Ranges. It is rough, rocky country that belies its ability to produce wines of great delicacy and finesse. The soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock with red clay soils and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The cooler climate of the Barossa allows fruit to experience longer ripening periods which is perfect for flavour accumulation and intensity.

The Barossa had a solid winter and spring rainfall followed by a warm and dry January and February led to a balanced vintage with good fruit intensity and structure. The moments of heat were short and dispersed and allowed for a long and balanced extended ripening period for the Riesling for this wine.
