Our 2018 Riesling displays the finer style Riesling that comes from the more elevated areas Great Western. Sourced from our Salvation Hills vineyard and a couple of select Great Western growers, it discplays classic citrus and minerality characters.
Chardonnay was one of the varietals planted first in the Concongella Vineyard in the 1970’s even though cuttings were extremely hard to come by at the time. This wine comes from an old single vineyard located on a cool sheltered site within the Great Western GI.
Made from grapes sourced off our own Riesling blocks and Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer from a passionate local grower, this blend is inspired by the great classic white blends of the noble white wine varieties in Alsace, France.
Our Nursery Block is a veritable vineyard museum with 39 separate varieties, eight remaining unknown and unnamed to this day. This is a wine that speaks more about history, soils and place than variety, a unique expression of Australian wine heritage
Our "House Block" is as it says, is planted beside the Best's homestead and produces some exceptional parcels of fruit. In the best years we take these parcels and make something a little special out of them. Picked earlier, these wines have great flavours and are made off dry to balance the wine, making a great all round style.
This wine is a representation of another facet of Riesling’s charms. Displaying complex aromatic honeyed richness with texture and acidity to balance, it is the ideal accompaniment to stinky creamy cheese.
