K1 Autumn Harvest Riesling 2018 (375ml)

15.75

Description

The Riesling grapes for this Autumn harvest were handpicked 11 weeks later than the harvest for the dry white wines. The additional hanging time accompanied by a natural botrytis infection have provided this wine with luscious sweetness and lingering intensity.

Bright gold in colour, the nose offers beautifully attractive aromas of ripe nectarines, honey, passionfruit, crab apple and orange peel, with a typical Riesling hint of musk in the background. The palate is piquant and zesty on the open, with a racy acidity giving way to concentrated dried stone fruit flavours, honey and sweet lime, sweet and tangy, with a long, clean, gently unwinding finish.

Serve up with Eton mess or a creamy blue cheese.

Producer: Wines by Geoff Hardy

Part of the Hardy wine dynasty in Australia, Geoff Hardy broke free of the family business to purchase his first vineyard in McLaren Vale in 1980. A few years later, Geoff found the perfect location for producing cool climate grapes in the Kuitpo region of the Adelaide Hills. He planted the first vineyard there in 1987 and named it K1 since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in Kuitpo. Since then Geoff has been involved in the planting of more than 3,000 hectares of vines and has consulted to more than 200 different vineyards in Australia, France and Italy.

In 2004, Geoff launched the Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy and GMH ranges of wine. Together with K1 Wines, these brands now make up Wines by Geoff Hardy and continue the 160-year old family tradition of pushing the boundaries of Australian viticulture. Winestate Magazine, Australia's leading wine industry publication, named Wines By Geoff Hardy Australian Wine Company of the Year in both 2012 and 2014, and senior winemaker Shane Harris Australian Winemaker of the Year in 2012, 2018 and 2020, the only triple winner of this coveted award.
