2017 HEWITSON RIESLING “GUNMETAL”
Eden Valley, Australia is recognized as one of the world’s great Riesling regions. This single vineyard, Moculta Road Vineyard, is recognized as one of the best Eden Valley vineyards. The specific topography and mineral profile provide ideal conditions for Riesling. Gun Metal describes the grey-colored stone amongst the vineyard while symbolizing the steely minerality of the wine.
Hewitson fundamentally believes great wines are the expression of the soils in which they are grown. The aroma and flavor of this single-vineyard Riesling reflects the minerals and microclimate of the vineyard. With no added sugar and no added acid, it is a pure expression of the grape, the soil, and the climate.
Pale straw in color with green tinges, the nose is aromatic with notes of lime minerals and powder. Delicate on the palate, but intense and with a dry finish, the body is lean and streamlined with racy, lime fruit flavor and hints of crushed stone.
This is one white wine that is ready to drink now but will continue to improve in a cellar for the next ten years.
