Château Tanunda Grand Barossa Dry Riesling 2022


Vines dating back a full century form the heart of this thrilling Riesling. They are from estate vineyards which are located “on the Biscay soils of Tanunda and the deep sands of the Vine Vale sub-region”. Not only a very attractive wine, but cracking value. Pale lemon in colour, this is fresh and fragrant, full of finesse. Lemons, spices, florals and, on the palate, a touch of lemon meringue. There is soft acidity running the length and the flavours never waver. Showing great length, this is attractive now and should drink beautifully for the next five to six years. Possibly a little broader than some of the classic Aussie Rieslings but the upside of that is that it will provide pleasure sooner.
