Gundog Estate Yarra Valley Riesling 2021

After the disastrous 2020 season saw Gundog Estate winemaker Matt Burton head south to the Yarra Valley to obtain fruit from De Bortoli‘s Dixons Creek plantings, the response to the wine was strong and so they’ve kept it in the line up.

Expressive and full Riesling aromas. Ginger and musk spice over matcha green tea, blossom and lime sorbet. Generous in flavour without forsaking structure or precision. Nearing medium body in weight yet stepping neatly and freshly through to the pure finish. Long tail of flavour that carries its intensity and persistence easily. Cracking value.

RRP: $35
Alc: 12.8%
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
