    Riesling

This is an intense style of Riesling with vibrant acidity and a minerally centre. Crunchy green apple and floral aromas, the palate has a tingling texture and lovely weight. Flavours of crisp pear and floral blossom. 

"Riesling is the most complex and noble of white wines, demanding intellectual engagement. It flourishes in our cold climate and high iron basalt soils." John Nagorcka - Hochkirch 

As usual, a standout Riesling from Hochkirch, aging over 10-12 years will be rewarded.

2016 Hochkirch, Henty, Vic, $35 - Riesling with texture and length

Previous vintages of this Demeter-certified biodynamic riesling have often displayed particularly delicious ripe fruit flavours, but the 2016 dials those characters up to 11: it's bursting with soft ripe pear and peach, and has an almost honeyed richness while all the time retaining crucial fresh, balancing acidity.
