Variety: Riesling
Country, Region: Australia, Heathcote

Georgia's Paddock:
12 hectares of Shiraz yielding about three tonnes per hectare (20hl/ha). Three hectares of Riesling giving about three tonnes per hectare (20hl/ha). Planted in 1975/76 with further small plantings done after the vineyard was ravaged by bushfire in 1987. One hectare each of Semillon planted in 1992 (since grafted over), and Nebbiolo planted in 1993.

'An ideal growing season led to wonderful days of tasting fruit prior to picking. Typical brilliant straw colour with hints of pale green. Ripe lemons, viscous honey-like mouth feel on the front palate to balance the zesty crisp, natural acid on the finish. Fabulous length. Serve chilled as a mouth watering aperitif, or as a great match with spicy dishes.
Screw-cap sealed, 13.5% alcohol
Emily McNally.

‘I've always liked this wine. Among the very best rieslings in Australia, a land with more of the grape under vine than Alsace. Far away from the monochromatic limey accents that are so ubiquitous on these shores, while as reliant on phenolic rails as it is on obvious freshness. Juicy. Pithy. Granny Smith granita, a faint whiff of jasmine, pink grapefruit, anise and lemon blossom. Mid-weighted, beautifully textured and immensely long. Mercifully, no petroleum. Drinkable now, but best from 2028. Screw cap.' 96 points, Ned Goodwin MW, JS Wine Ratings, August 2023.

'Whether it’s down to this very special rift of dirt or not, these wines are simply incredible.' Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate.

'the best nebbiolo I’ve found outside Piedmont.' David Williams, The Guardian, April 2019.

Established in 1975 by Ron and Elva Laughton, Jasper Hill producers some of Australia’s most compelling and sought after wines. Located at Heathcote in Central Victoria on ancient Cambrian soils-deep, red coloured, well drained gravely loams on undulating hillsides. These support low-vigour vine growth without the need for supplementary irrigation.

The wines are produced entirely on the estate using organic and biodynamic principles. Inter row mulching and self made organic compost is used to improve soil organic matter. This allows greater bio-diversity in micro flora and fauna, supporting large earthworm populations beneficial for natural soil fertility. Following these principles no synthetic chemicals have ever been applied to the soils or vines. Vines are grown on un-grafted root-stock and non irrigated, expressing flavours and characteristics natural to their variety and terroir. Grown at elevations of 1000 feet the vines benefit from warm days but cool nights, imperative for natural acid retention and structure. None of the wines from Jasper Hill vineyards has even been acid adjusted at any stage. These are natural wines of striking purity. With 35 vintages to their credit, these wines have a long established record for ageing gracefully with careful cellaring.
