The schist soils of Block 2 from the Elms Vineyard undoubtedly assist in setting the scene for this commanding and mineral infused Dry Riesling. Nashi pear, talc and floral notes dominate the bouquet. Notable weight and power through the mid-palate provides grandeur with racy acidity which freshens and tightens, leading to a sustained and impressive finish.

 

93/100 - The 2023 Dry Riesling is mineral and flossy on the nose, with pear drop, lavender, lime flesh, lemon barley, sweet pea florals and green apple skin. In the mouth, the wine is just so pretty. It's austere in its acidic flow and fleshy on the mid-palate, but it has lovely balance and poise. 12.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. - Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate 

93/100 - Delightful fruit and floral notes of candied lime, green honeydew melon and peach blossom followed by meringue and a touch of wet stone minerality. Medium-bodied, mouth-watering acidity. Lively and vibrant. Firm. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. Screw cap. - James Suckling 

Riesling from Block 2 of The Elms vineyard was hand-picked then carefully whole bunch pressed, settled for 3-6 days before racking, then followed by a slow fermentation of 10 weeks with indigenous yeasts to almost complete dryness (3g/L RS)

The wine rested on fine lees to build palate weight before bottling in early-September after minimal processing (no fining or cold stabilisation) to preserve and highlight the delicate Riesling characters.
