"97 points. Dazzling quartz-green, this has a purity and restraint that is in the fountainhead of all great rieslings. It is as much to do with what it doesn’t have (overt acidity, extract, etc) as its many high points. Free-run juice from high-quality grapes has its own reward." James Halliday

The Skilly Ridge vineyard, planted by the Ingham family in 1994 produces an array of exciting varietal characteristics from each of the different planted varieties. Much thought was given to where each variety would be planted, and this saw the Riesling block thrive on a mixture of clay, loam and shale with an ideal easterly aspect.
For over 25 years, this vineyard has been meticulously cared for, attention being paid to shoot positioning, sun exposure and ideal canopy size. The fruit shows intense lemon, grapefruit and blossom aromas and flavours with a focussed line of minerality and acidity, yet retains delicacy and purity for an enjoyable finish. 
Produced using only free-run juice, fruit flavours are kept pure and the resultant wine mirrors the berries tasted in the vineyard at harvest.
