The Story Wines Whitlands Riesling is highly aromatic with a floral citrus blossom profile. We are huge fans of Riesling with a hint of phenolics and sugar. It pads the palate out perfectly and this is a prime example. Delicious!

Whitlands is a regional departure for for The Story Wines however shares the very cold climate character Riesling needs. The Croucher Vineyard is set at close spacing on red volcanic soils, up at around 800m above sea level, and was planted in the mid-1980s. Whole bunch pressed with a little more phenolics for texture and left with a little residual sugar, this wine is highly aromatic with a floral, citrus blossom profile. I am huge fan of Riesling with a hint of phenolics and sugar. It pads the palate out perfectly and this is a prime example. Delicious!

The Story Wines Riesling is no-longer coming from Henty unfortunately as the Barratt’s vineyard was pulled out so that Rod and his wife could sell up and retire. A shame for us but a well-earned rest for them. Its replacement is much further afield, but shares the very cold climate character we think Riesling needs. We were told about an old Brown Brother’s contract site next door to their Whitlands vineyard that had some pretty smart Riesling, so we went to investigate. The Croucher Vineyard is set at close spacing on red volcanic soils, up at around 800m above sea level, and was planted in the mid-1980s.

It seemed to have the right credentials. They lightly whole-bunch pressed it and then fermented it in stainless, a very simple, clean ferment which they stopped a little early to balance the acidity. It finished with 8g/l residual sugar, which we think benefits the wine as it is a really focused, citrus number with great precision. We think it should cellar well but in a few months should be good to enjoy in its crisp youth.
