2021 Koonowla Riesling

2021 Koonowla
Riesling

Sourced from our two sustainably grown vineyards in the Auburn district, they combine to create a crisp and vibrant wine teeming with amazing flavour.

The 2021 vintage is recognised as one of the greatest seasons in the past two decades, producing pristine fruit that has been nurtured to reveal pure and exciting expressions of all the varieties we grow. 

Our Riesling is not just about immediate refreshment and palate thrills. It has a rare sophistication in its minerally textures and lip-smacking palate feels. This only comes from the gentlest of winemaking techniques, starting with handpicked fruit, followed by minimal intervention in the winery and a focus on crafting the most regionally authentic wine possible.
