2022 House Block Riesling
Colour: Pale gold with a green tint/ edges
Bouquet: Fragrant and lifted apricot blossom, honey nectar with sweet spice
Palate: Lemon pith, baked pear, cinnamon spice, apricot nectar with crisp mineral acidity leading to a supple viscosity providing softness to the palate.
Cellaring: Our Rieslings have previously shown an ability to gain further complexity and aged regional characters as time goes by. This is one of our finest examples of this off dry style and should excel in the cellar.
Pairing: Drink to 2035 with a creamy blue vein cheese, or alternatively a crème brulee.
Vintage: A warm, dry growing season meant that the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Some late season rainfall ensured the grapevines remained in prime condition. Fruit was harvested retaining soaring natural acidity with intensely concentrated fruit flavours.
Region: Great Western, Victoria
Grape Variety: Riesling
Winemakers: Jacob Parton
