The grey, solemn label says it all. A small parcel of high quality unirrigated Central Victorian Riesling grapes was offered by the Roberts family of Bridgewater-On-Loddon to partially offset the burnt crop. The resulting wine is outstanding – very flowery, perfumed aromatic nose; bone dry, young, flinty acid firmness. Only 140 cases produced.
