This wine differs from most Australia Rieslings in that it has been fermented in oak barrels and left on yeast lees. The result is a fuller, broader style white, displaying a distinctive creamy textured palate.

Brilliant pale gold colour with pale gold, straw hue. Floral top notes, followed by honeysuckle and rose petal. The nose has none of the expected character of the variety which has been fermented in stainless steel. The palate is generous, with excellent mouthfeel. Flavours of honeycomb and honeysuckle are evident followed by a hint of spice and lime. Soft acid finish. The aftertaste has a citrus and honey tang.
