Unique Riesling, the Ashton Hills 2019 is unlike anything else from Australia. Exotic aromas of lychee, pear, baked apple, white flowers and cinnamon. Beautiful, tensile palate with lemon zest, gala apple, apple skin and nutmeg. There is tension between the supple, barely perceptible sweetness and the racy vibrancy coiling the fruit. Wonderous wine.
Sourced from the Ashton Hills Estate’s original 1982 plantings, where only eight rows of low-yielding Riesling vines remain. The grapes are hand-harvested, with ample acidity and moderate sugar levels. Destemmed, crushed and chilled. A gentle press cycle was used to separate the free-run component for the resulting wine.
