THE VARIETY

Riesling

Riesling, the noble grape of Germany, is one of the world’s greatest varietals. The varietal has high-acidity and very aromatic, almost perfumed, with notes of lemon, wax, honeysuckle, green pear, apricot. The grapes are used to make everything from off-dry wine to dessert-style and in turn, it’s extraordinarily versatile with food. Lighter, crisper Rieslings pair well with delicate (or raw) fish and fresh salads. With more substantial Rieslings are great with Asian food, chicken, salmon and tuna.


THE REGION

Great Southern

On the southern fringes of WA, this large and diverse area has five official sub-regions. Along the coast there is Denmark and Albany which have a maritime climate. Moving north, there is Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River where altitude plays a role reaching up to 300m above sea level. The moderate to cool climate allows for ideal conditions for a diverse range of varietals including Shiraz, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay.
