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.
