About the Wine

Riesling thrives in the Eden Valley, where it is higher and cooler than the Barossa Valley floor. The region has produced some of Australia's most classic Rieslings and Coulter is very much paying homage.

Where modern Rieslings can tend towards juicy flavours to offset dryness, Coulter unashamedly lean into the variety's natural strengths. Gently fragrant, with apples, lemon blossoms and kaffir lime. It smells so enticing and friendly. At 1.4gr residual sugar, though, this is bone dry. The linear acid is an exciting jolt to the system, carrying lemons, lime, river water and a mouth-watering chalky minerality. It'll do a better job of waking you up than your afternoon coffee.

Aussie Riesling as it should be. Complete the picture with prawns, oysters, or anything you'd squeeze citrus over.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
