Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter Lehmann, Saltram and Kaiser Stuhl. Scholz are still in charge, pruning their vines and pressing their harvests into limited releases of the finest exemplars in old world style, Barossa village.. Savour the shiraz by scholz»
Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of wines, made by environmental purists in the old fashioned way, crafted to the most uncompromising standards and branded as Prophet's..

The St Hallett philosophy is tried and true, take minimum intervention but give maximum attention. Each vineyard is separately vinified for a month, ferments are kept cool to retain the delicate Riesling fruit characters. Upon completion, batches are fined and individual parcels are assessed, the best components are identified and assembled into the finished wine.
Light luminescent straw hue. A pretty nose with hints of rose petal and citrus blossom, the fresh lime notes expected of fine Eden Valley Riesling. A palate of remarkable elegance and harmony, aromatic citrus flavours are carried on a silky textural mouthfeel, lined with fruit sherbet flavours. The soft lime acidity is very approachable, even as a young wine, a Riesling of persistence and superb length.
