Pale straw gold in the glass, this 2021 Riesling is bright and fresh on the nose – plenty of juicy lemon zest aromas are joined by hints of talc and sea spray. Crisply dry on the palate , the lime and talc notes are carried through and combine with a pleasing high acid line, some grapefruit pith and a touch of marzipan rounding out the lingering finish.

 

2021 vintage started off with average winter rainfall after the very dry 2020 Summer. Then an abnormally cold October and November temperatures affected flowering and fruit set on many varieties. Some untimely early February rains threatened to spoil what was otherwise a very nice even season, however sunshine, warmth and stable weather patterns prevailed with 2021 looking to be a classical Great Southern.

Machine harvested at night when cold and directly tipped to the press as opposed to destemming. Gently pressing to extract light clean and pure juice was key, then cold settled for clarity prior to cool fermentation in stainless steel. This wine leans heavily on Frankland River fruit to achieve the softer, floral driven style, whilst still maintaining bright acidity.
