Grand Barossa Dry Riesling 2014
Tasting Notes

GRAND BAROSSA Riesling draws from the Barossa region’s Germanic history. Barossa (often known as being synonymous with Shiraz) is once again turning heads for its exceptional Riesling. Refreshing, dry and displaying all the delicacy, elegance and finesse of this noble variety, 40% of this wine comes from old vines planted on the Château Tanunda Estate in the 1920s. 

GRAND BAROSSA Riesling is subtle yellow in color, displaying delicate lifted aromas of lime blossom and citrus fruits. Lemon, lime and hints of passion fruit are in abundance. The palate is focused, pure and linear with a delicious juicy finish. Elegant and intense with a touch of minerality and refreshing acidity.

From estate vineyards in the Bethany, Tanunda and Vine Vale districts. Early picking was the right decision, preserving natural acidity and giving the lime/lemon fruit an edge that is a distinct plus. Excellent outcome from the Barossa Valley floor.
