Region: Heathcote - Victoria
Winemaker: Adam Foster
Varietal(s): 100% Riesling
Adam Foster makes a great fist at Riesling.
For him, texture is the name of the game when dealing with this variety.
A portion is fermented in ceramic egg, the wine left on lees for an extended period to soup-up the mouthfeel. The natural electric acidity from this fruit cuts through leaving it refreshing to the end.
A riesling of texture, personality and drinkability. I like the really fine, powdery-chalky feel to the wine, but likewise found the tart, tangy acidity pleasing. There’s great volume of pot pourri, black currant, citrus in the bouquet, providing a pretty intro to each sip. The crystalline, mouth watering finish delightful. Great stuff here!
