Tim started making this wine because a) he likes drinking it and b) he thought other people would like drinking it too.

It’s from a single vineyard in the Eden Valley, which is a region just 10 minutes from the Barossa.

The vineyard is 99 years old - and with older vines you tend to get more complexity and concentration in the grapes.

Tim calls this ‘pretty unspectacular winemaking’ - the fruit is such good quality, it makes his job easy.

You land up with a dry, refreshing and punchy Riesling that belies its 11.5% ABV - it’s all citrus, florals and apples, with delicious drinkability and length.

Tim likes to drink this on a Friday with mates after work - he advises to drink Riesling nice and cold to keep its refreshing flavours.
