A bit of a deviation from our previous iterations, the 2020 Spring is a wine that speaks very strongly of its vintage. Still marked by the bright floral tones we love in this young vineyard, but with a fuller palate of fleshy stone fruits supported by chalky structure and a creamy acidity reminiscent of Grandma’s famous lemon meringue pie.
This years first pick from our original Riesling vineyard, the RS22 has a long life ahead of it. Fermented and matured in a combination of large and small old oak, this RS has bracing acidity and grippy phenolics, with just enough sweetness to temper such a powerful Riesling.
A very dry season for the Yarra, 2019 was low yielding but high quality. A cool change early in the harvest helped to retain freshness, although the vintage is apparent in the darker aromatics. Only a baby, the 2019 Healesville Syrah is still a little closed, with restrained fruits and fine chalky tannin structure that will carry it through to maturity.
Perfect for the wine and/or food lover in your life. Redeem at our Cellar Door or Bistro. Personalise with a message at checkout and we can send it direct to the lucky recipient. $5 postage included in the price.
