About This Wine
Very floral aromas that are dominated by honeysuckle, the palate has well balanced sugar and acid with fresh lime flavours.
100% Riesling, sustainably grown.
100% Coal River Valley, Southern Tasmania
FGR is a wine acronym for forty grams residual referencing the natural sugar content per litre within the wine. This particular wine pairs perfectly with spicy food due to its natural medium sweetness and crisp acid. This wine is labelled 'medium sweet'.
The Tasmanian wine region is a cool climate region, the most southerly of all wine regions in Australia. Due to the lower temperatures, the area grows primarily Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, with smaller plantings of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Having been to many wine tastings over the years, I can definitely say from a personal standpoint that Tasmanian Chardonnay and Pinot noir are always ones I look forward to trying if they are on the menu. They are almost always high calibre wines that can easily compete against what the rest of the world has to offer in these varietals.” Jason C. – World Wine.
While Tasmania makes great still wines, the exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir also make for excellent sparkling wines.
More recent vintages since 2005 have been positively impacted by the effects of global warming. With slightly higher temperatures the grapes are ensured to ripen fully and produce more vibrant wine.
