This elegant Riesling has a nose that is initially shy but soon opens up in the glass with aromas of melon, lime zest and elderflower. The flavour spectrum is largely citrus with a hint of Granny Smith apple and great salinity. The palate is mouth filling, yet fresh, with medium body and length. Enjoyable at release, this wine will continue to evolve for 8+ years.

These Riesling grapes come from a single vineyard located on a prestigious terrace in Bendigo. The 2019 Wild Earth Riesling is the second single vineyard Riesling produced from this site. The Riesling grapes were hand harvested on the 14th April 2019. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and cool fermented in order to retain aromatic freshness. Fermentation was stopped at optimal balance which in this vintage was just slightly off-dry.
