A stunning example of Australian Riesling "Julius" Riesling is produced from grapes grown in the Eden Valley. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks. Vintage 2012 has excellent potential storage for 20 years.
Surprisingly mild summers helped slow ripening, thereby creating a wine with rich tones of berries and flowers in aroma, high acidity, ripe tannins and intense citrus flavor. In 2012, the harvest was in the first half of March.
