Skin contact is evident with pale yellow colour. A sweet lemon/citrus nose with a hints of minerality. On the palate, sweet Riesling fruit layered over a dry lively acid backbone and finishing with that engaging touch of bitterness.

A standout Riesling from Hochkirch, and aging for 10-12 years will be rewarded.

Tasting Notes for Hochkirch Riesling 2019 from the Winery

Skin contact is evident with pale yellow colour. A sweet lemon/citrus nose with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, sweet Riesling fruit layered over a dry lively acid backbone and finishing with that engaging touch of noble phenolic bitterness.

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.
