Winery: Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown
Region: King Valley - Victoria
Winemaker: Tessa Brown & Jeremy Schmölzer
Varietal(s): 100% Riesling
A Germanic style Riesling from the highest Riesling vineyard in Victoria. It's dry, slatey and beautifully balanced.
While the Schmölzer & Brown duo await their own estate-grown Riesling to come online, they are plundering other cool-climate Victorian regions for premium fruit to play with.
Here they take fruit from the highest Riesling vineyard in Whilands region, Victoria, and turn it into their version of a German Trocken style Riesling - hense the Obstgarten 'T'.
The acidity is absolutely blistering allowing the wine to find an easy balance with a touch of residual sugar though still maintaining a dry style overall.
This is a beautiful, elegant style of Riesling from one of Victoria's rising star producers. Drink now or cellar long.
