The vineyards are vertically integrated through a rigorous regimen of site selection, viticultural development and management. This style of Riesling bridges the gap between the traditional Aussie which proffers citrus, chalkiness and calico, as opposed to their French counterparts which exude floral scents and offer refined, fruity palate structures.

The Pipers Brook vineyards are characterized by idyllic growing conditions. Grapes are encouraged to retain all the delicate but ripe, crisp varietal fruit flavours. Tasmania's cool climate when combined with close planting over gravely soil can yield a fine and delicate Riesling wine. Crop levels are maintained at low levels by bunch thinning to increase the intensity of flavours. Bunches are hand harvested throughout the early morning hours and cooled before an immediate processing to capture and retain the vivacious expression of the vineyard. Following the press, musts remain on skins to extract optimal flavours. A long cool ferment encourages retention of fresh fruit flavours while enhancing the bouquet.
Colour is a pale lemon. Lifted, perfumed nose with floral notes and traces of Asian tropical fruits. The palate is elegant and refined yet powerfully concentrated with traces of tangy citrus and tropical flavours, the overall balance is crisp and dry with a light skin tannin structure and soft mineral tones lifting the finish. In its youth the wine is superb, but this is a Riesling of substance which will develop beautifully.
