GOLD MEDAL Winewise Small Vignerons Awards 2021
Winemaker Greer Carland is the daughter of Kerry Carland of Laurel Bank, a pioneer of the Granton area of Tasmania's Derwent Valley. She has been making wine in Tasmania for 14 years, including as Senior Winemaker with contract giant Tasmanian Vintners (formerly named Winemaking Tasmania). Fruit for this Riesling is sourced from the Derwent Valley.
Michele's notes: This is the style of riesling that Tasmania does so well - the long cool ripening season imbuing the wine with incredible depth of flavour and soft richness without compromising freshness. Florals and sweet mandarin citrus on the nose. Exquisitely balanced palate, layers of intense fruit flavours backed by judicious acid. It is drinking very well as a young wine, but will also cellar splendidly.
