2016 Lavender Hill Sweet Riesling

"Inspired by beautiful wild Lavender, this Riesling surprises and delights. Fall in love with sweet Riesling.”

On the hills that surround the Jim Barry winery grows a beautiful stand of lavender, nestled amongst the native flora and fauna. The winery was built in 1974 and the first Lavender Hill wine was made that same year, as part of the inaugural vintage.


The wine shows a pale yellow/green hue in the glass. The nose displays elevated aromas of rose water, freshly squeezed lemon and white peach. Generous flavours of ripe guava, lychee and Asian fruits are in abundance on the palate.

This is matched by a hint of residual sugar and well balanced by a tight line of acidity. Lavender Hill 2016 is the perfect partner for spicy South East Asian Cuisine.
