2020 Parish Vineyard Riesling
Yalumba’s Robert Hill Smith and Louisa Rose of Pewsey Vale & Heggies fame are intrinsically linked with Eden Valley Riesling. They had also long admired the potential of Tasmanian Riesling, so when the opportunity came up to work with a unique site of mature Riesling vines they jumped at it. Located in the Coal River valley, this small block of Riesling is hidden in the midst of larger plantings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines.
Brilliant water like colour with a greenish tinge to the outskirts. Elevated lemon and lime scents are followed by orange rind, chalky talc and flinty wet steel like notes. Intense and racy the mouth watering palate is lined with scrumptious lime and lemon fruits. Notions of orange rind, chalky talc and flinty mineral characters round out the crunchy acid finish. Superb power with a long concentrated aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
