Subtle aromas of nectarine, pear and apricot blossom. The iron stone soil produces a flinty mineral character with a fine powdery palate of lemon and lime. It has undertones of gravely minerals, a character seen consistently off of this vineyard. The palate finishes with thrilling natural acidity which balances beautifully with the fruit giving the wine a long textured finish.
Iron Knob Riesling is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked, then chilled to 9˚C, the juice separated and skins pressed. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering ensures a clear bright finish.
