About The Wine

One of the country's preeminent Riesling exponents here unleashing an alt-styling of their pet variety.

The Alter Weg is a Riesling inspired by the 'old-school' winemaking methodology practiced by the great Germanic Riesling makers of the old world. This is first class, organically grown fruit fermented for a time on skins, then matured on lees in barrel for 11 months prior to release.

It's a powerful, potent Riesling with layers of textural intrigue. In this wine, the new world meets the old. An awesome expression of Frankland River Riesling that will blow your hair back.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Such and explosive wine. Ripe Meyer lemon and a hint of nuttiness, full and round with laser beam focus. It's a Riesling missile with great attack and concentration in the mouth. Searing but slurpable. Excellent rendition of the variety from this great producer. - Different Drop Wine Team
