Really lovely, textural expression. Complex, fresh, delicious.
About The Wine
Sam Leyshon's expression of Riesling from the Hilltops is awesome drinking on a warm afternoon.
There's no skin contact here, rather old barrels and lees time are used by Sam to build some scaffolding around the pure, energetic fruit from the Freeman vineyard.
Blink and a glass of this will disappear in front of your eyes.
Well and truly worth the exploration if you're look for something outside the classic 'line-and-length' Australian Riesling style.
