Laurel Bank Derwent Valley (Tasmania) Riesling 2016

Standard

The Laurel Bank vineyard (now almost in suburban Hobart) is a neighbour of the Stefano Lubiana vineyard at Grafton. Both are perched on the north facing slopes overlooking the Derwent River. Warm enough from the sunshine, but there’s cooling breezes from the wide valley below. A sweet spot for riesling, as both labels produce great examples.

According to the Canberra International Riesling Challenge, the award of Elite Gold means “[the recognition] is equal to or better than 96 points”.

A number of you have had this wine before, with some coming back for repeat orders. I’m down to my last 9 bottles now. They’re in Melbourne and can be here mid-November if ordered, current price is S$39 (previously $43-$44).

Enjoy!
