About

Given the option to take on one of the old Brown Brothers Riesling vineyards in the Whitlands region, Rory Lane thought he'd take a look. What he found was a 30-year-old close planted site at 800m above sea level, the perfect site to make beautiful, delicate Riesling. Due to the high natural acidity produced by these vines, he retained a little residual sugar (8g/l) to give more fruit weight and ultimately, more drive to the wine. He's got the balance spot on making this 93 point Riesling perfect for drinking right now or in a decade's time.

What it Tastes Like

"A smidge of residual sugar gives strong apple/lime flavours an extra push. This is a mighty tasty young riesling. Soft but lengthy and incredibly pure. It will age but full enjoyment is available now." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
