A single vineyard, Kabinett-style Riesling from the highest altitude Riesling vineyard in Victoria: mature, unirrigated and close-planted vines on the Whitlands high plateau. This has pretty, spring floral aromatics with some more tropical fruit complexity from two separate picking dates. Two thirds cool-fermented in tank and one third fermented in old hogshead without temperature control. This has 25g/ L residual sugar and plenty of natural acidity to balance the fruit and sweetness.

Heralded as “one of Beechworth’s rising stars,” husband and wife team Tessa and Jeremy Schmölzer Brown purchased a 20ha block of prime cleared land just south of Beechworth, complete with lake and abandoned goldmine back in 2013. Whilst Jeremy had previously worked as an architect, Tessa comes with a wealth of cellar experience, having clocked up years working as a winemaker at Kooyong estate, and closer by at Sorrenberg. They’ve so far planted 10,000 vines at the highest point of their property, with the plan to farm it organically. In Tessa’s words, “Winery operations are a shadow dance to the vineyard's growing season and although the work happens indoors, it can’t be separated from the vineyard.” Whilst waiting for these vines to mature, they’ve been producing wine from several vineyards close by in Beechworth, as well as the King Valley and the Alpine Valleys, all farmed with the same principles as they follow. 2018 will see the first vintage from their own plantings, and we couldn’t be more excited!
