Maverick Trial Hill Riesling

This dry Riesling is a single vineyard white wine coming from the flagship Trial Hill Vineyard, once part (Block 1968) of the original Pewsey Vale Station, the oldest cool climate vineyard of Australia, first planted in 1847 at the instigation of Joseph Gilbert.
A classic example of Eden Valley Riesling. A wine of great structure and intensity of flavour, giving the wine its lime and lemon sherbet characters.
