Equal top Gold at the 2023 awards. We were overjoyed to be awarded joint top Gold for the 2022 Estate Riesling in the 2023 Royal QLD Wine Awards in 2023. The Estate Riesling 2022 appears in the glass as very pale straw wine with green tinges. The nose is classic Great Southern Riesling with lime, talc and a perfumed floral lift. Powerful lemon and lime intensity with racy acidity and a quenching slatey finish.  With an aging potential of 10-15 years, we cannot wait to see what else this wine will do.
