Riesling probably has its origins in Germany, on the banks of the Rhine and Mosel rivers, where it has been cultivated at least as far back as 1435. Alsace in north eastern France is Riesling’s other traditional home. Today, Australia can lay claim to some of the finest Rieslings in the world, with the Clare Valley, Eden Valley and Tasmania earning particular global acclaim.
On the nose, there are vibrant aromas of orange blossom and lemon zest and floral tones. The palate is equally bright with citrus and rose petal leading to a crisp lemon finish. The balance of fruit weight and natural acidity delivers an excellent mouthfeel.

Here's a classic Mount Barker Riesling that is just delicious. A pure expression of fruit, with crunchy acidity and refreshing lemon and lime... it's such a baby, and yet will be able to cellar for over 20 years. Made from some of Mt Barker's oldest vines (there's a clue), this mystery white was given 96 points from James Halliday who described it as 'exquisite'. In other words, it's an absolute cracker!
