  • Tasting Note: Tasmanian Riesling, a deliciously fragrant mouthful, heady with orange peel, musk and ginger.
  • Food Matching: A refreshing aperitif style which would work well with sauteed scallops.
  • Vineyard: The fruit for this riesling was sourced from the Hanigan family in the Derwent Valley, twenty minutes north of Hobart. Overlooking the Derwent River, the riesling, an unknown clone, was planted in 1993 on own roots on loam over limestone soils. It is cane pruned and trained to a vertical shoot positioned trellis, and shoot thinned in the spring.
  • Vinification: Handharvest in two picks. The first pick was destemmed and left in contact with skins for about eight hours prior to gentle pressing. Wild fermented (indigenous yeasts) in stainless steel over a month. After the ferment was arrested, the wine was left on lees for close to two months, stirred weekly.
  • Awards and Press News: Matthew Jukes This is another very grand wine indeed. With none of the urgency of some of the entry-level Aussie Rieslings this is a diva with sultry lemon sherbet fruit and just the merest hint of juiciness on the finish. Usually drama in Riesling is derived from the tang on acidity on the finish. In Sam's wine she allows the fruit itself to impart all of the mystery and complexity and then gives you just a little more, in the way of a curtain call, when you expect it all to come to an end. This is a scintillating wine. 100 Best Australian Wines 2017/18
