      Tasting Notes and Description
      Brilliant pale straw with green hues. Highly perfumed and delicate aromas of lemon blossom and kaffir lime leaf. Some talcy mineral notes add complexity.

      Refined yet powerful. Concentrated around a core of fresh kaffir lime, lemon drop lollies. Spear-like acidity and a slightly talcy texture are markers of the region and season. A very long finish. Stunning.

      Enjoy with mackerel sashimi.

      Named after family matriarch, ‘The Merle’ is selected from the best parcels of Riesling from our Polish Hill River Estate, this release is sourced from 3 blocks. We are aiming for the purest expression of Polish Hill Riesling for this wine.

      2021 was a stunning vintage, relatively cool with perfect ripening conditions. Our healthy vines produced fruit of exceptional quality, allowing us to create perfectly balanced wines.”
      Steve Baraglia, Chief Winemaker.

      "If there is a better Riesling made in Australia this decade, I want to know about it. $55 might seem hefty for a local Riesling but in world terms, this is criminally cheap. This is so close to perfect, it deserves full points but I think it might just get even better and I need the wiggle room."

      (Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot, May 2022)

      "This has very intense aromas of lime and wet slate with some sweeter florals, as well as white nectarine. So fresh. The palate has intensity and drive, with the same fresh lime and white-nectarine flavors. Very long and vivid. Drink or hold."
