2020 Pooley Riesling

$39

Coal River Valley

Colour is pale white with green hue. Initially the nose is a little shy (more reminiscent of Cooinda Vale) with notes of jasmine and orange blossom. The palate is more flamboyant (reminiscent of Butcher’s Hill) with notes of lime zest, red apples and green melon. The palate has great drive and intensity. Very Germanic.

Dry

2020 saw a dry start to the growing season with winter rainfall well below average. Cold and windy conditions during flowering resulted in smaller yields. Early summer saw a continuation of dry conditions, but temperatures moderated significantly coupled with significant rainfall in late February and March freshened up canopies providing an ideal finish to the growing season.

A blend of Butcher’s Hill Riesling (60%) and Cooinda Vale Riesling (40%)
