Ladbroke Grove School House Block Coonawarra Riesling 2019


Sourced from not just the School House Block, but also the Magarey Vineyard in Coonawarra. People forget that Coonawarra was a regular source of Riesling for many years, with even more planted throughout the region than Cabernet, up until the early 1970s. A lovely lemon yellow, there are notes of spices, citrus, honeycomb and stonefruit while floral touches add to the complexity. Upfront notes here, this a wine of medium length with crunchy acidity providing some good punch. Drink now and for the next four years – an intriguing style that lovers of Riesling will welcome.
