2018 HRB Riesling
For this vintage of HRB Riesling, fruit was sourced from premium vineyards in Clare Valley and Tasmanian viticultural regions.
Displaying the best of both regionals, this Riesling blends the fine lemon/lime and mineral tightness of Clare valley fruit with the expressive stone fruit flavours of Tasmania. The resulting blend creates a balanced wine that expresses lifted citrus fruit tones over a lengthening mineral and acid structure that draws you in for another juicy sip.
2018 was a typical hot and dry season in Clare Valley & Derwent Valley. Spring rains brought good growth and soil moisture out of a relatively dry winter. After spring, rain events were quite sparse, and careful water management was the key to producing good fruit. Rieslings this year show great citrus fruit concentration and elevated mineral characters
