At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility.

Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press.

Hand picked Riesling is delivered to Petaluma for immediate processing. The bunches are de-stemmed, crushed and chilled to less than 5C then treated to Willmes tank presses. The free run juice is cold settled for a natural clarification then racked to fermentation tanks and inoculated. Fermentation is monitored over several weeks at temperatures of 10C to 13C rising to 17C over the last few grams of sugar. The wine is chilled to below 0C and the yeast allowed to settle. A gentle filtration retains all the fruit, dulcet aromas and lavish flavours.
Pale golden straw. A delicate, floral wine displaying minerality and lemon lime perfumes. Forward, mouth filling and generous, exceptional depth of layered fruit and distinctive characters abound, a seductive mouthful of bosc pear and white peaches, lime and green tea flavours. The passionfruit, pear and apple expressions are backed up by lovely intense lemon-limes with a slatey, minerality that lingers long and dry upon a highly polished finish.
