2018 The Florita Riesling

‘Florita’ is Spanish for ‘little flower’. In 1946 wine merchant Leo Buring purchased land in Watervale and planted sherry varieties including Palamino, which were later replaced by Riesling in 1962. Jim Barry Wines purchased this vineyard in 1986.

First released in 2004, this micro-batch Riesling is made from grapes hand-selected from individual rows. An elegant and balanced wine with intense floral aromas and classic citrus overtones. A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next 30 years.

This wine exhibits a pale straw in the glass with a slight green tinge. Opens with lifted aromatics of lemon, lime and citrus blossom. A wine of immense drive and purity, the palate displays powerful, pure fruit with great length of flavour. Citrus flavours abound. Tight, linear acidity holds the wine it great stead for the future. A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next ten years.
