Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

The appearance is delicate pale straw with tinges of green and brilliant clarity.

Aroma

This beautiful cool climate Riesling has a wonderfully aromatic bouquet with tangy lemon citrus and subtle peach blossom petals. There are notes of paprika spice that give an extra lift.

Palate

This is a classic style, bone dry Riesling that’s driving the resurgence in popularity for this variety. It has wonderful fresh fruit flavours and a steely minerality that lasts long on the palate but leaves a fresh clean taste on the finish.

Food Matching

Dry Riesling is being rediscovered by foodies around the globe. It’s the perfect accompaniment to all seafoods and has the depth of character to handle the spice hit of many Asian cuisines. From sophisticated sashimi tuna to crispy battered fish and chips, this Riesling is an ideal match.

Cellaring Potential

Aged dry Riesling is an awesome experience. It develops wonderful secondary characters that add an extra dimension to the flavour. Keep some if you can but Denise loves to serve her Scarlet Skirts Riesling while lively and young. She recommends serving chilled and to enjoy over the 18 – 24 months.

Winery Profile

My first winemaking experience was harvesting grapes in the Barossa Valley during vintage 1981. Long hot days were spent hand picking bunches of sweet, sticky Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and a host of other nearly forgotten varieties. At the end of each day after the last bins were tipped into the crusher, we’d meet at the weighbridge with Peter Lehmann for a bottomless glass of robust Shiraz and an inspired conversation about the new wines and vintage developments.

After three decades my day still ends with a nice glass or two of Shiraz or maybe Chardonnay but a lot has changed over that time. From a humble cellar hand plunging skins in open concrete fermenters during the 1980’s, to debating the appropriate cooperage for Hunter Shiraz with Len Evans in the 1990’s to the corporate boardrooms of giant multinationals in the 2000’s, I’m now back to making wine as an independent negociant.

Based in the heart of McLaren Vale, I’m surrounded by wonderful old vineyards and dozens of modern wineries run by talented winemakers. The joy of being a negociant winemaker is the flexibility to be able to source grapes and make wine anywhere throughout Australia. The benefit is an unlimited resource of varieties, regions, styles and skills to craft individual batches of unique wines without constraints.

My goal is to create genuine, honest wines that showcase flavour, vitality and life. Good wine should be accessible to all and be enjoyed as part of a healthy, active lifestyle with fine food, close friends and plenty of fun. I have many favourites but I believe variety is the spice of life and I enjoy discovering new flavours and stretching the boundaries of traditional winemaking.

From an old favourite to something exotic, tantalizing and new, I hope you enjoy the journey through my selection of classic Australian wines.
