About

This is one of the first wines to be released from Sam Connew's own vineyard, the Palisander vineyard, in Coal River Valley, TAS. It's an exciting development for Sam and her brand, now having viticultural control over her fruit. The first releases are excellent. The 2016 season was warmer than usual for Tasmania, the acids in this Riesling less severe and the more generous in fruit flavour. The thumbprint of Tasmanian terroir shines through regardless, but there's possibly more joy to had in this wine in its youth than usual. Classy Riesling with a plethora of brilliant reviews and a lot of personality.

What it Tastes Like

Green apples and a golden lemony tangy. There's a generosity to the fruit to complement the crunch and mineral aspect to the wine - gives it lovely balance and flow. There's a savoury element to the finish, lightly herbal like lemon myrtle tea. Great stuff. Superior drinkability for Tasmanian Riesling.
