The very dry growing season produced small berries, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, early press cut to optimise the free-run juice. As complex and concentrated as the growing conditions would suggest, and the magnums ($48) look particularly appealing. Lemon juice and lemon curd flavours are buttressed by talcy acidity.

This is in excellent form. Indeed it’s drinking beautifully now. It has a textbook lime-talc-slate flavour profile, the finish dry but the palate juicy and generous. Excellent shape, structure and flavour. A standout under this label. Will age but summer here we come.

Light to medium yellow colour; aromas of dried flower arrangements, dried herbs and other savoury yet flowery things. The palate and aftertaste are very dry, yet smooth and balanced. It will reward some ageing. A traditional dry-style Aussie riesling.
