David Hook 2018 Riesling Glass
Riesling is not a variety that grows too well in the Hunter so David sources the fruit from Orange where the vineyard sits at a chilly 860 metres. This cool climate provides conditions that allow for slow ripening which results in maximum flavour while maintaining acidity. The vines are 31 years old and planted in deep red basaltic soils on sheltered north facing slopes of Mt Canobolas.
Bright green in colour with zesty aromas of pear, lime and blossom. A gentle fruit sweetness mid palate, pink lady apple & nashi pear keeping it fresh, leads to a clean fresh acidity with a finish that is long and soft.
