Gardens of Earthly Delights Riesling
Each year grapes for the GOED Riesling are sourced from the Merindoc vineyard located only 4kms from our own property in Tooborac. The single clone single vineyard site is surrounded by granite boulders and rolling hills. All grapes were handpicked on the 6th March 2018 and this year 1/3rd was fermented in ceramic egg with the further 2/3rds in old French oak barrels.
A riesling of great texture, personality and drinkability. There is a great volume of pot pourri, citrus & slate in the bouquet, providing a pretty intro to each sip. The palate shows off a really fine, powdery-chalky feel that is in harmony with lemon pith and green apple. The fruit sweetness and powdery tannins drive the long finish.
