A stunning example of Australian Riesling - "Julius" is produced from grapes grown in the Eden Valley. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks. The 2006 season was not very favorable for the ripening of the grapes, but thanks to the mild summer with southern winds managed to collect a small but exceptional harvest. Wine "Julius" has excellent potential storage for 15 years.
