"Exotic spice, talc and lavender over juicy lime. It's explosive with tight acidity, a fine chalk dust grip and texture, a tingle of ripe lemon, subtle sweetness, pulling tight and very long on the pure and mineral laced finish. It's a beautiful thing. Tension and flavour. No harm in smashing this one now, either." 95 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Stunning SA Riesling from winemaker's on the rise.

  • As always, the 2019 hails from the mature Gulley View vineyard, on red loamy clay over limestone. This is the vineyard that historically supplied Leo Buring, once the maker of Australia's greatest Rieslings. The fruit here is destemmed and crushed before pressing; the free-run juice was then settled and racked and fermented to about 11 degrees. Col halts the ferment with around 5 g/L residual sugar to balance the muscular acidity that this terroir delivers.

    Region: Clare Valley, SA
