2018 Riesling

2018 Riesling


Rowanston On The Track

Our award-winning Riesling is a refreshing, dry, clean wine true to its variety.  We produce a Riesling that is wonderfully refreshing and acidic to drink when new, but it also improves a little each year. This Riesling has lovely intense aromas of lime and lemon zest with lingering flavours of white nectarine and crisp apple.

Rowanston produces low yields of Riesling in Australia's coolest wine region on the famous Burke & Wills Track.

"Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, cultured yeast, cool-fermented in stainless steel. this is an embryonic wine, everything tuned down by the use of whole bunch pressing. All it needs to transform itself is time." Halliday

Rowanston Riesling award track record: Trophy, Gold Silver, and Bronze medallist.
