Our Vineyards Emily's Paddock: three hectares of Shiraz including around five percent Cabernet Franc, yielding about two tonnes per hectare (14hL per hectare). Planted in 1975/76. Georgia's Paddock: twelve hectares of Shiraz yielding about three tonnes per hectare (20hl per hectare). Three hectares of Riesling giving about three tonnes per hectare (20 hL per hectare). Planted in 1975/76 with further small plantings done after the vineyard was ravaged by bushfire in 1987. One hectare each of Semillon planted in 1992, and Nebbiolo planted in 1993. Cornella Vineyard: four hectares of Grenache planted in 1998. All vineyards are planted on their own roots, to retain purity of style, rather than grafted on to Phylloxera-resistant American non-vinifera root stock. The vines have a sunny, open, balanced canopy that keeps fungal diseases at bay and eliminates the need for summer pruning, leaf plucking and crop reduction. All picking and pruning is carried out by hand by wonderfully skilled people from the district. All vineyards are unirrigated and rely on natural rainfall only. Both Emily's and Georgia's Paddocks are on elevated hillsides at an altitude of 320 metres (1000 feet) and are approximately 1 km apart. Emily’s Paddock has a NE aspect and shallower soil, while Georgia’s Paddock has a NW aspect and the deeper soil. The vineyard at Cornella, is 20km north of Emily’s Paddock, within the Heathcote Region and on the same Cambrian soil, with an altitude of 330 meters and a NE aspect. Read less

Medium lemon color. Medium intensity of honey, bosc pear, a faint layer of smoke, violets and minerality. Dry on the palate with crisp acidity. Nicely integrated alcohol of a medium level give the Georgia's Paddock Riesling the perfect weight to carry the prnonounced mineral character on the palate, with its oscillating flowery notes, which seem to come and go in waves. A flash of sage at the end. As the wine warms up in the glass the mouthfeel gets a touch of creaminess. Long length. Drink now through 2020. This is a very fine Riesling, different aromas and flavors all coming together to form an exciting liquid mosaic.
