A classic wine of Gladstone terroir.  This year maintains the standard with the wine’s mouth filling richness and intensity.  The palate continues to be classic with traditional wine making techniques unchanged.  Regular lees stirring in best French barriques is enhanced by secondary fermentation in Springtime.  Toasty oak with beautiful peaches and cream.  A touch of minerality, but with a silky finish.  Excellent balance.

Domain Road Dry Riesling 2016

$26.00 $23.40

Pale straw with clear hues, our Water Race Riesling is a dry style with balanced crisp acidity. Aromas of lime and mandarin dominate on the nose with hints of floral and ginger. Lemon, lime and stonefruit flavours show on the palate leading to a long mineral finish. An excellent food wine, full of flavour, so it can hold its own against quite strong flavoured cuisine. Also excellent with fish and seafood.
