2023 MACKENZIE WILLIAM 1896 RIESLING

$32.00

Our 2023 Mackenzie William Eden Valley Riesling brings together the much sought-after lemon and lime balance with elegant floral aromas that Eden Valley Rieslings are so well known for.

A hint of spring blossoms and a splash of ripe grapefruit juice seem to keep all that zesty lime citrus rush and minerality in superb balance.

These beautiful fruit layers add such complex flavour dimensions to the long dry finish.

Overcoming challenges posed by a delayed harvest in the cool, wet summer, our team meticulously crafted outstanding whites, including Pinot Gris and the revered 1896 Mackenzie William Riesling.

Subsequently, meticulously picked reds followed suit, capturing the essence of ripe, high-quality fruit.

A historic milestone was reached with the inaugural crush in our state-of-the-art winery and our first bottling in our brand-new bottling plant.

Savour the culmination of a remarkable year with each sip of our 2023 vintage – a testament to perseverance and refined winemaking.
