The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»
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..

Riesling grapes grown to the higher, slow ripening vineyards of King Valley translate into delicate and intensely flavoured whites. The warmer days develop ripe fruit flavours, cooler nights achieve crisp varietal characters. The fruit is harvested throughout the cool of night, crushed and chill pressed before the dawn, to the lowest free run juice yields. To ensure a superior quality of wine, juice yields are closely watched and the pressings are arrested at the first sign of phenolic uptake. Batches are treated to a cool vinification for 3½ weeks in controlled fermenters, retaining all the wonderfully fresh citrus characters and preserving pure King Valley Riesling charm.
Light straw colour. An intense floral nose with a hint of zest, rose petal and honeysuckle aromas leading to stonefruit flavours. A luscious, cool ripened palate that's bursting with citrus, lime and spicy fruit flavours, soft and fresh. The long and lingering, gentle palate is softened by a touch of residual sugar, finishing clean and lingering, tight and very crisp.
