Lemon sorbet and fennel with a long, drive, textural finish. Excellent, dry riesling.
About The Wine
Hunter vigneron Matt Burton must be a secret Riesling-lover, when he's not drinking Semillon. He's got a savoury Yarra version, and this super chalky expression from the Long Rail Gully vineyard near Canberra.
With a citrus zing to make you sing, this is a pretty good wine for a back garden karaoke session. Dry as the proverbial but with good fruit concentration that gives the mouthfeel depth and succulence.
Now what's a good song match? Something by Gundogs & Roses? Paradise Viti?
About Gundog Estate
Gundog Estate is owned and run by the Burton family, with son Matt in charge, and the cocker spaniel Karl Marx providing the inspiration for the label.
As well as their Hunter home, Matt sources fruit from the Hilltops and Canberra wine regions in New South Wales, making a tremendous value range of wines made from sustainably grown grapes.
Semillon is top dog, of course, and Matt makes both traditional and unconventional styles.
