Wilson’s Polish Hill River Riesling is sourced from their oldest vineyards planted over 40 years ago. Its miniscule yields typically produce a wine rich in citrus fruits within a steely structure, tight with lots of minerality. Beneath the iron stained clay lies a bed of decomposing slate and scattered quartz. It’s also not unusual to find remnant pottery and agricultural implements from the Polish Settlers who once lived and farmed the area now planted to this small vineyard.

A stunning Polish Hill Riesling that has intense, mouth filling flavours sculptured by chiselled acidity.

Brilliant very pale straw colour with gleaming green tinged edges and a watery hue. Powerful aromatics of lime, lemon and Granny Smith apple engulf the olfactory senses complimented by wet steel, subtle chalky talc like notes and minerals. Racy lime, citrus and to a lesser extent orange rind flavours are delivered with magnificent concentration, stunning drive and show a real textural presence within a chiselled structure. Green apple, wet steel and chalky mineral elements also chime in. Threading the enormous volume of fruit is crunchy mineral infused acidity which provides a steely backbone. The finish exceptionally long, mouth filling and intense.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
