Established 1973, Woodlands of Wilyabrup were one of the first vineyards in Margaret River, planted with a view to emulating the great growths of Bordeaux. Recipients of the highly prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal and Wine Industry Lifetime Achievement Award for their tremendous vintages of all things Cabernet. Assembling the rich Medoc style blends are what Woodlands do best. Painstakingly crafted by hand, to challenge the primacy of the illustrious Chateaux de la rive gauche, very few vineyards yield the quality of fruit that merits vintaging into a statuesque wine dominated by the prettily fragrant Cabernet Franc. Woodlands were established from the ground up with a view to achieving limited harvests of the abstruse Bordeaux varietals, only a few hundred cases of good red wine per vintage. Two precious vineyards, located within the elite terroirs of Margaret River's Wilyabrup Valley, are dry grown and farmed through holistic regimens of old world viticulture. The most bountiful vintages can only produce a small amount, the sanctity of soil yields a vividly varietal Cabernet Franc of stature, elegance and the most finite..

Pikes Merle Reserve Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare South Australia
A pure expression of Riesling and an embodiement of the uniqueness at Polish Hill River, Merle is crafted by a Riesling specialist after collation of the finest fruit from each vintage. Named for the estate's matriarch Merle Pike, she knew that she was going to have her own label and was quietly chuffed about it. An intense and pure Riesling wine with refined citrus characters over a slatey mineral palate, successive vintages of Merle have been selected for service in Qantas First Class.

Merle expresses the slatey soils of the distinguished Pike vineyard. The Polish Hill subregion is considerably cooler than the rest of Clare Valley, imparting distinctive flavours and aromas into the ultimate wine. Vines are kept fresh with minimum levels of irrigation, just sufficient to keep the leaves intact and functioning, but not actually growing. This encourages all the vine's energy into ripening the fruit, optimizing flavour and aroma development in the process. Treated to the most exacting fruit selection and the highest standard of vinification, only the exclusively free run juices are included, Merle is inoculated to a mix of choice yeasts and coolly fermented without any malolactic.
Brilliant pale green colour. Pure, delicate citrus notes of lemon/ lime/ grapefruit with a twirl of regional slatey mineral character. Delicate, subtle and dry with vibrant lemon/ lime flavours tightly woven around a core of slate/ mineral acid that provides length and texture. A complex yet completely integrated, fully engaging wine.
