Riesling

We have gone back to basics with this wine, from the label taking heed of the classics of the 70’s, to the wash on the paper. Lifted blossom & lime with fresh minerality, whilst he palate has a textural element but is really all about the structure, drive & purity of fruit.

Another new wine for HART & HUNTER, with the 2018 Riesling and a fair bit of history to boot! The story is said that back in the day Semillon in the Hunter was sold as ‘Hunter River Riesling’, which we now know as incorrect and that in fact it was the Semillon grape. There is only one vineyard left growing this beautiful variety and we have been busting to get our hands on some, and this was our year! And we couldn’t actual resist a bit of an old school pun on the label, except in this case it is actually the Riesling grape we are talking about, off the famed Pokolbin Estate Vineyard. Just lovely..

We have gone back to basics with everything to do with this wine, from the label taking heed of the classics of the 70’s, to the wash on the paper, to the simplistic approach to our winemaking. We have in fact treated this wine as we would Semillon, where it is all about preserving those natural delicate flavours without too much external influence. Lifted blossom & lime, with fresh powder. The palate has a textural element but is really all about the structure & drive & purity of fruit.

Enjoy with the freshest of seafood, like oysters or sashimi.

Chill it and enjoy this wine, but also short term cellaring would be expected.
