New Release Whites: Traminer Riesling & Viognier

2014 whites Viognier Tram Ries SSince we have over 14 grape varieties to choose from we are faced with a range of options at vintage as to what styles to make. 2014 was an excellent year for our whites so we produced these two aromatic beauties, one in a crisp dry style and the other sweet and succulent.

NEW RELEASE WHITE WINES   –   MARCH 2015

2014 Viognier

This Rhone variety is thriving in the Barossa climate. Viognier is rather vigorous in the vineyard and seems to have taken well to our heavy/clay soils. In recent years Ron has reinvigorated his passion for white winemaking by exploring the limits of this wonderful adaptable variety. The last 2013 vintage was a lighter body low alcohol style with similar tropical and quince flavours that the 2014 has produced. Ron made the conscious decision to keep it completely unoaked to capture the essence of the variety. The luscious palate pairs well with grilled seafood and richly flavoured foods.

Taste Notes: A fresh unwooded style using gentle basket pressing and cool fermentation to capture the stunning peach, pineapple and quince flavours.

2014 Riesling Traminer Late Picked

Our late picked Traminer Riesling has been a staple in our range since 1993 when we released our first version dedicated to Ron’s mother Lorna Liebich (1917-1997) who always appreciated a sweet drop. This succulent blend of Riesling (66%) with Gewürztraminer (34%) delivers a beautiful bouquet with a succulent palate. It will reward cellaring and improve in depth, flavour and complexity developing candied citrus and honey flavours.  Enjoy this wine as an aperitif, with a dessert, or with a delicately spiced curry.

Taste Notes: A delicate style with a perfumed bouquet of musk and citrus blossom. The sweet palate is balanced by low alcohol and fresh natural acidity.
