Riesling vines were first planted as part of Henry Bests Nursery Block vineyard in the 1860s. From subsequent plantings in 1944 and 1978, riesling has become a significant part of their regime. The riesling vines from Great Western produce flavoursome, elegantly structured, spectacularly age-worthy rieslings which stand confidently alongside some of the most outstanding Australian examples of the variety. This 2018 vintage features lifted and intense aromatics of musk, honeysuckle, kaffir lime leaf and crushed rock. The palate is fine and fragrant with steely acidity. Fruit weight smooths the edges and a powdery lime rind and river stone minerality holds everything in place for a long finish.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 6.
