2021 Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling
Coming from a highly successful and lengthy tenue as chief winemaker at Wirra Wirra. Samantha Connew did something she claimed she would never do, she decided to move to Tasmania and make first class wines under her label Stargazer Wine.
'This is the sixth Stargazer Riesling to come from a single vineyard site in the Teatree sub-region of the Coal River Valley. Planted in 2004 to a density of 5000 vines per hectare.
Very pale yellow/ green in colour, the nose shows plenty of varietal typicity with citrus notes of lime zest and lemon blossom with the trademark Tea Tree apple skin character also evident. The palate is juicy and and crunchy with the acidity contributing energy and vibrancy, perfectly balanced by a gentle lick of residual sugar.' - Producer notes
