Wellington & Wolfe 2019 Riesling
Winery : Pinot Shop
Hugh McCullough discovered wine while studying for a degree in History and in particular, two generals – Wellington and Wolfe. After being captivated by Tasmania since his first visit Hugh settled in with partner Natalie Fryar (Bellebonne) and the kelpies to establish the 'riesling project' in 2017.
“Textural Riesling of character and body … that doesn’t rely on sweetness …” Tyson Stelzer
Startling in its purity and precision with texture and fruit power. It bursts with citrus and blossom characters, while the racy Tasmanian acidity drives a long pallet full of depth and complexity. Extended skin and lees contact and partial fermentation in old French oak barrels. Hugh works closely with growers in the Tamar Valley and Pipers River regions.
