2019 Swinney Riesling
The fruit was hand-picked from D from our Powderbark vineyard in Frankland River with careful attention to eliminate any bunches with excessive sun exposure. The fruit was whole bunch pressed, lightly settled and then fermented in stainless steel tanks to achieve a vibrant and expressive reflection of the purity of Frankland River Riesling. Following fermentation the wine rested on its lees for 4 months to both preserve freshness and build texture prior to bottling.

Linear and focused, with pristine lime, lemon and green apple skin flavour extending long and pithy towards a lingering bone-dry finish. 95 pts

Pale green-yellow hue, the bouquet exceptionally fragrant, with high-toned citrus pith and citrus juice aromatics. A suggestion of gardenia. The wine is superbly intense and refined, mouth-watering acidity cleansing the finish beautifully. There is a faint trace of grip and the wine is remarkably juicy despite having no residual sugar. A beautiful young riesling with a bright future. 96 pts
