Straw Boss Riesling 2023 *New Release*
Our much loved and long awaited STRAW BOSS returns to our vintage line up for 2023! We are thrilled to share this incredible and extremely special vintage with you.
Junior Superior With some responsibility but little authority.
Every pour (paw) pays homage to the dedicated vineyard protector, guardian and much loved farm dog, Whitey.
Subtle grass appearance and a wine that delivers on the palate fresh, fruity, and floral, notes of pear, lychee and hints of honey and vanilla, with a dry and crisp finish. On the nose delicate floral and citrus aromas. a core of fruit intensity underpinned by the acidity born of a cool season in a cool region. A safe 5-8 years of cellaring will see it bloom into a toasty complex beauty.
Grapes sourced from a newly established Adelaide Hills Riesling block planted in 2017 with cuttings from the same GM198 clone 1998 vineyard on the property. With a gentle westerly aspect and the soil compositions of loam over shale and sheet sandstone, this site was carefully procured with the end goal of producing fine, balanced Riesling grapes.
Winemaker Notes - Pete Leske
Handpicked and whole bunch pressed, this (very) small batch wine has been carefully crafted to replicate the wines of the Rhine Valley. This wine was bottled on the 3rd of May, earlier than usual to preserve the fresh and lively characters.
