The rewards from the unique minerality found in this vineyard’s soils and it’s proximity to the southern ocean are aplenty in this Riesling. A beautifully balanced wine with a palate of lime and citrus pith and a stunning nose of green apple. With mind blowing acidity, it is drinking beau fully now, but could easily go another decade in a good cellar.
Coola Road wines come from grapes grown on land that has been in the Ellis family for over 160 years. The vineyards lie across fractured flint beds which together with the close proximity to the Southern Ocean and low cropping levels, have enabled the wines to take on very unique mineral qualities not found anywhere else in Australia. Mount Gambier is Australia’s newest official wine appellation, and with the mainland’s coolest maritime climate, it is an area that is now being recognised for producing high quality cool climate wines.
