The ‘cool’ uncle of the family, EB59 is a hell of a lot more hip than it has any right to be. This Riesling was fermented in a similar fashion to many of our red wines – 100% whole bunches, extended foot-stomping by a local water polo hero, left on skins until dry and then matured in small format old oak. Think fresh ginger, supple tannin and enough attitude that people might mistake you for an inner-city twenty-something.
A match made in winemaking heaven. The heady aromatics of Gewürz are balanced by the grounded structure of Riesling. Co-fermented in concrete and matured in old oak, just like all good romances.
East facing within a smaller valley that runs from Yarra Junction to Poweltown in the south, featuring grey loam soils with underlying silt. Cooler winds roll off the Yarra River, with mountains directly to the north and south-west providing protection from hot afternoon sun in summer. Typically later ripening, thicker skins and higher acids are reflected in elegant structure with clean lines and powerful drive.
Sitting behind the Waramate hills, this area encompasses both red volcanic and grey loam soils making it slightly more complicated to pinpoint a clear identity of this subregion. The undulating hills provide protection from the drier winds, the rainfall is slightly higher and the perfume, weight and structure appears more dense and effortless, pulling through seamlessly to the back palate.
