Holm Oak Riesling 2020 (6 bottles)Regular price $300.00 Sale price $263.88
Tasmanian riesling at its best, bringing together the mineral/citrus flavours of Holm Oak's estate planting at Rowella and the more aromatic and floral aromas from a leased vineyard at Rosevears a bit further down the valley. Its lime blossom aromas are taken into the bosom of the juicy fruit tempered by just the right amount of acidity. - 95 Points, James Halliday.
This Riesling is a fine and delicate wine with lovely aromatics and a minerally palate. The nose displays aromas of lime leaf and jasmine with some spiced apple characters, whilst the palate shows mineral characteristics with fantastic fruit purity and steely acidity.
Fruit for this Riesling comes from both our own vineyard and Liopoto Springs vineyard which we lease. We picked both of these blocks of riesling in great condition when the fruit was showing lovely lime and floral aromatics with quite a high acidity. The juice was fermented at low temperatures; one batch with an aromatic yeast strain and one with a neutral yeast strain. Following fermentation the wine was allowed to sit on gross lees for about 2 months to enhance the wines texture.
