Parish Vineyard Riesling 2023
The Parish Vineyard Riesling is defined by a long taut spine of slaty acidity, balanced by textured complexity, with flavours of a wild cottage-garden - camomile, feijoa, dried lavender, juniper and grapefruit with aromas of tea rose, cumquat and ocean spray.
Just 30kms north east of Hobart in the Coal River Valley, a unique site was discovered. Sitting below the imposing Mount Lord, with views over Pitt Water the property is beautiful and rugged. Proprietor Robert Hill-Smith and Winemaker Louisa Rose, intrinsically linked with Eden Valley Riesling, had tasted and talked about Tasmanian Riesling on many occasions, over many years. They were enthralled by the bracing steely backbone of these wines, that reminded them of the cool and wild climate of the Tasmanian Coast.
