Leconfield Coonawarra 'Old Vines' Riesling 2019
Pale straw yellow with green tinges, vibrant floral perfume with zesty lime. Made in a dry style, the palate is elegant and fine and shows mid palate texture. It finishes crisp and clean with a light refreshing spritz.
Sydney Hamilton planted the 6 acre (2.6 ha) Riesling vineyard in 1974 and we have now completed a restructuring of the vineyard to sustain it over the next 40 or more years. We made several small parcels using different yeasts and techniques, included some barrel fermentation of a small batch in well seasoned hogsheads to provide texture and length.
Perfect with oysters, salsa, seafood and pasta or enjoy it as aperitif.
