2019 Hard Hill Road Writer's Block Riesling

2019 Hard Hill Road Writer's Block Riesling

The highest, most exposed ridge in our vineyard inspires my wife, Eva, the writer in the family. From this ridge, The Writer’s Block Riesling displays the kind of intensity, focus, and pureness of expression writers desire. Harvested a little later that our Chockstone Riesling, the grapes benefit from a touch more sun, resulting in a crisp structure and layers of subtle flavours. Nine months on lees in ten-year old French barriques lend a softness and inviting textural element.

Pure expression of Great Western minerality and delicate Riesling fruit characters. Wildflowers and citrus, with hints of passionfruit and guava.

Focussed, crisp, structured and precise right now, a decade or more in the cellar will unearth unexpected new layers of flavours and elegant complexity.

Pressed; fermentation in old French barrels; 6 months on lees; 'tiny' level of residual sugar. Named in honour of the winemaker's wife, Eva, a well-credentialed writer. This is why we get excited by Grampians riesling! An enduring classic in the making, with impressive intensity from the start. A rich vein of lime cordial, lemon curd, citrus blossom, fresh-cut green apple and wet stone runs deep. Smooth, dry (that tweak of sugar melts into the richness), mouth-watering acidity and a sleek restraint. Quite an accomplishment. 96 points + Special Value | Aug 2021

Light yellow-straw colour, with a nutty overtone to the lemon pith and candlewax aromas. There could be some barrel involvement: it is not really fragrant in the floral sense. A hint of almond. There is very good flavour intensity and drive, seamless texture and a clean, dry, appetising finish and aftertaste. 91 Points | Feb 2021
