About The Wine
Adam Foster makes a great fist at Riesling.
For him, texture is the name of the game when dealing with this variety.
A portion is fermented in ceramic egg, the wine left on lees for an extended period to soup-up the mouthfeel. The natural electric acidity from this fruit cuts through leaving it refreshing to the end.
Mike Bennie called it, "A riesling of texture, personality and drinkability." which is spot on.
Adam Foster loves Heathcote.
He loves the ancient soils, the climate, the fruit that grows in the area. This is his personal label that focuses on individual parcels of fruit from some of the most idiosyncratic vineyards in the region.
Adam has planted a small vineyard on a granite-riddled outcrop in Tooboorac which has enormous potential.
His wines are old-world inspired, powerful and intense. A producer to watch for the future, no doubt about it.
