Seville Estate Riesling 2018


Some punchy lime and floral aromatics kick off this surprising Yarra Riesling. Not a grape we expect from the Valley, but this is an exciting, if different, effort. Wild yeasts and barrel fermentation in old 500 litre oak barrels ensure this is a style with little in common with what we typically expect.

Some jasmine notes on the nose and an impression of a steely style, but the palate reveals an unexpected creamy texture. Surprisingly soft. A balanced Riesling with weight, which is very appealing. Good length with some lemon and talc on the lingering finish. A wine with a good decade ahead.
