Other Notes
Moderate temperatures throughout a wet spring and into flowering resulted in healthy canopies with slightly lower than average yields. Above average rainfall over the Summer due to La Niña was moderated by dry spells and moderate temperatures resulted in slower ripening. High levels of acidity were retained along with great concentration of flavour, fine detail and precision.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes
This Riesling is our first, with fruit sourced from our friends Ruth and George Mihaly’s Paradigm Hill vineyard. The wine has a beautiful bouquet that showcases what Mornington Peninsula Riesling can deliver. Kaffir lime, musk and talc create this journey that is defined by the long and lingering natural acidity that makes this fruit pop and over time should develop extraordinarily well.
