Wild Earth Wines
A complex nose of lime juice, grapefruit zest and burnt orange peel, with a lift of cherry blossom. The citrus laden palate is medium bodied with notable mid-palate intensity and a persistent zesty finish. Wonderfully balanced around the apt acidity, the wine has a charming touch of sweetness that is immediately transformed into a long, dry finish. This wine shows the fruitful honesty of young vines but equally has enough serious stature to continue to shine for 7+ years from release.

These Riesling grapes come from a single vineyard located on a prestigious terrace in Bendigo. The Riesling grapes were hand harvested on the 27th March 2018. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and cool fermented in stainless steel in order to retain aromatic freshness. The fermentation was stopped at optimal balance which in this particular vintage was slightly off-dry.
