Very Special (White)
- ADELAIDE HILLS
Crafted with reverence for the traditional German-style Rieslings that elevated Australian white wine drinking. The Aussie slant known fondly as ‘Moselle’.
Perhaps, looking back, there was more to these wines than our relaxed consumption credited them for. Refreshing as all hell, but complex and beautifully balanced too.
Our Very Special Riesling celebrates the way these wines united Australian palates for communal consumption. From the ‘70s to the ‘80s, evolving over time, to the Rieslings we crave and seek out today.
A more premium iteration of the early style, our VSR is fermented under cool conditions, mimicking the freezing temperatures of far north winters where it all began. Icy-sharp acid and citrus zest, with a touch of residual sugar softening the palate. A respect for the hallmarks of this variety.
2021 was a cracking year all round and our Riesling block never looked better. In the cool of the cellar, the natural ferment idled long and slow, a pleasure to taste daily.
Sharp and precise, beautifully detailed, it’s the Riesling we love to drink. White flowers and scents of jasmine, kaffir lime leaf and tangy lemons.
You can see it ageing gracefully for decades, but something tells us stashed bottles will be a rarity. We proudly call it our best yet.
