Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra. Husbanded by the 4th generation, parcels from the 1966 vines are assembled into the estate.. The velvet virtue of old coonawarra vines»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard.. Sociable soils make for healthy vine»

Forest Hill Estate Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Mount Barker Western Australia
Forest Hill's experience with Riesling dates back forty years to when the first two acres of vine anywhere within the Great Southern region were established. One of the most precious sites planted to the superior terrains around Denmark, it was selected by Dr John Gladstone, one of the pioneers of West Australian viticulture, later acquired by Robert Holmes à Court. Nothing short of exquisite, a fine acid structure will see it evolve beautifully, clean varietal fruit and softness make it a perfect match today alongside Thai prawns in ginger, chilli and lime.

Riesling is harvested early in the morning to ensure the coldest possible fruit temperature. A key aim of the winemaking process is to preserve the very delicate flavours and aromas. Fruit is immediately pressed without enzyme for a gentle and quick extraction. Only the first portion of free run juice with the freshest flavour and the lowest concentration of phenolics is transferred to tank. Juices are cold settled, racked and left to ferment with wild yeast at 14°C to 16°C. Wild fermentation of the juice although risky for such a fragile variety adds complexity of flavour and increases palate texture. Upon completion the wine is fined, filtered and bottled as soon as possible to preserve the vibrant flavours and aromas.
Brilliant pale straw. Lifted aromas of citrus blossom, zest of lemon, green apple, underlined with floral notes, citrus zest and rose petal evolve in the glass, waxy lemon leaf and lime, complex floral notes feature. The natural acidity is very well balanced and integrated, lifting the freshness of flavours and lengthening the fleshy mouthfeel as it evolves on the palate. Flint stone characters linger, persisting into a crisp mineral finish.
