This is a remarkable vineyard in a special part of Victoria, located 2.5 hours north east of Melbourne. The vineyard site was planted in 1983 on a gentle easterly aspect which is perfectly suited to Riesling. Granite boulders in the soil were so large the site had to be planted around them. The overall soil profile is very free draining decomposed granite. At 600m in elevation this site has a much cooler growing season, the nights are especially cool which contributes to harvest being much later than in the Yarra Valley. This is a site to be celebrated.
Please note that other Rieslings have been produced from this site under the EB (Experimental Batch) labels.
For wines produced from this vineyard pre 2012 please see the archive tasting notes in Other Wine Stuff.
