Another fantastic vintage 2021 has resulted in a quintessential Watervale Riesling, with great purity of fruit and excellent balance. Signature lime and lemon notes shine here, with undertones of wild fennel spice and an electric acid line.

Winemaking Style:Traditional

Harvest:Fruit is harvested in the cool of the night.

Winemaking:Fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and gently pressed. This results in a fine free-run cut and a pressing component, with all batches kept separately in stainless steel tanks. The free-run juice is chilled to preserve the vineyard expression and purity of fruit. Once the juice has settled it is racked off solids and seeded with yeast. A cool, temperature controlled fermentation is carried out over 10-14 days. The wine is then chilled and filtered prior to bottling.

Viticulture:Grey loam acid soils over sandstone and slate make up the profile with much of the topsoil littered with rock, proving just how tough the vines need to be to sustain growth and produce quality fruit. It is the slate of Polish Hill River, as opposed to the limestone of Watervale, that gives rise to the point of difference between these styles.

Food Pairing:Oysters, Spicy Thai green curry, Grilled prawns with lemon and herbs, Lemon butter grilled scallops, Ceviche, Tofu stir-fry, Lime and cilantro marinated chicken, Sweet and sour pork, Fresh papaya salad, Seared snapper with lime salsa.

Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

95

The Wine Front - Campbell Mattinson

This is so direct, so dry and so intense. It’s a statement in pure, clean form. It’s beset with gravel, steel and kaffir lime juice/leaf notes, and it drives piercingly long through the finish. Drink the Watervale, cellar the Polish Hill River.

The Real Review - Aaron Brasher

Pale straw colour, really youthful in the glass. Aromas of citrus blossom, jasmine, wet stone, lemon pith and ginger. Really fine and delicately poised on the palate, tightly coiled-up. Tangy lemon, mouthwateringly crunchy acidity and a minerally, textured and long finish. Just at the beginning of what shall be a very long life.

Halliday Companion - Erin Larkin

Incredibly plush and ripe citrus fruits overlay a skeleton of minerally acidity. More structured than it is flavoured, perhaps, but plenty of saline acid to keep the party going.
