Riesling Mount Barker Western Australia
Forest Hill Vineyard is planted very close to Mt Barker, its unique topography, deep gravel soils and proximity to the Southern Ocean assures mild summers with cooling southerly breezes. Identified in the 1970s by gentleman James Halliday as the most outstanding Riesling of the Australian west, Block 1 is a sacred old parcel, one of the first ever planted in Great Southern. Wild yeast fermented for richness and complexity, vibrant and crisp with juicy natural acidity, Block 1 sings of its Mount Barker provenance, a long, lingering, flinty finish in a graceful, old vines, Riesling way.
Available in cartons of six
Bright straw with light green hues. Lifted aromas of jasmine, lime blossom and sea spray. The palate displays citrus zest, fresh lime, grapefruit and slate. Natural acidity drives the long mineral palate, Block 1 is defined by its luminescence of fruit and refined chalky Riesling textures.
