Origin: Tamar Valley
Style: Light-bodied white wine made in stainless steel
A balanced and promising Riesling. There seems to be quite a bit of ripeness and sense of concentration with a good acid structure, suggesting some unrealized potential. Lots of freshness coming in the form of green apple, melon, citrus fruit. A mineral touch on the finish. Ready to be drunk now, but could also age a few more years easily.
Studying in Bordeaux and California, Sue Bell concentrates all her efforts on small parcels of fruit and produces wine in Tasmania, Coonawarra, Heathcote and Wrattonbully. With her academic background focused on agriculture, even though she buys all her fruit, she still has the advantage of advising her growers on how to improve production. Naturally, this Shiraz was planted on a perfect location, greatly benefiting from the rich terra rossa soils, formed through the transformation of limestone over thousands of years.
