Hello Spring! The perfect season for our 2021 RIKARD Riesling.

The first release of our 2021 vintage and the first wine made from the vineyard we’ve been resurrecting for the last 18 months, one of the highest Riesling vineyards in the country at 1100m.
The vineyard was overgrown ...with blackberry brambles and wattle trees - retraining and pruning the vines has been a labour of love, now in bottle.

A very limited release of our 2021 RIKARD Riesling is available - incredibly moreish with exceptional length and structure.

This wine is showing a highly perfumed nose with lime blossoms, honeydew melon and jasmine, the palate is zippy with spine-tingling freshness and acid. Citrus fruits dominate and are softened by a mealy, textural mid-palate.

As the glorious sunshine signals the last of winter days, we’ve been warming up in the vineyard.
.
Pruning, mulching and tending to the microclimates under vine with some new plantings, giving some natural nutrients to the soils as they begin to absorb the warmth of the growing season ...ahead.

Celebrating International Pinot Noir day. 🍷

We love Pinot Noir, a variety that reflects a sense of place. For us, the high altitude vineyards of Orange.

We hope you joined us (virtually) in raising a glass of your favourite Pinot this #internationalpinotnoirday

Vineyard restoration continues (in between rain, snow & arctic temperatures at 1100m ASL)
.
Pruning & retraining the Riesling & Pinot Noir vineyard we've been working on for the last year or so
.
It's so gratifying to bring a vineyard back that had been left ...for dead (& being taken over by blackberry & wattle). Hopefully some nice fruit to come from it this year.

2021 RIKARD Riesling going into bottle next week!
.
.
Think lemon blossom, orange rind & jasmine with a hint of sesame.
.
.
It's a true expression of the lovely vintage that 2021 was for white wines in @orangewineregion. This wine is a bit special in that we had ...friends & family in the vineyard to help pick. Grown, made & bottled within a 500m radius.
.
.
Available ot our online store soon (link in bio) & to our wine club members next week 🥂

Cool climate Pinot Noir in its natural environment.

It was a fairly hair-raising trip in the ute down the mountain yesterday with the wine club orders but we made it. Not in time for the long weekend but for the Winter weeks ahead in front of the 🔥

So. Much. Snow. ❄❄❄
.
40cm deep. Hoping to get vehicle access in the next few days so we can wine club orders out. Till then - please excuse our snow spam.
.
We mature most of our wines for 2 Winters prior to bottling. People often ask why. Our cold Winters enable natural cold... stabilisation of wines meaning we don't have to add chemicals to do the job. #minimalinterventionwine
