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.
This is a stunning off-dry Riesling with an abundance of white peach, apricot, nectarine and citrus aromas. The palate shows juicy notes of orange, mandarine and lime with supporting hints of jasmine and lychee. A concentrated and mouth-filling wine with a tangy minerality and a balanced, lingering aftertaste.

“The Xabregas Artisan Riesling has taken me on a real journey and all my members adore it. Wonderfully fresh and textural, this Riesling has been barrel fermented. Imagine an explosion of lemon and freshly cut finger limes with a creamy mid palate and a slate like minerality. Finishing bone dry with a bright acidity, this is my pick to accompany freshly shucked oysters and shellfish on a hot summer’s day. It’s a Riesling with real x-factor and finesse.” Kristelle Colling, Personal Wine Advisor
