The Wine

The 2021 Vintage is one of the finest of recent times - only time will tell just how revered it will be. The long dry ‘Indian Summer’ dealt us almost perfect ripening conditions, the small crop harvested with an abundance of flavour and a stunning citrus acid line. A fine talc like quality present reflects the sheer fruit intensity and we thank our ‘mate up on the hill’ for his efforts. It’s a great drink…and I have to say thanks to my sister Lee for bringing the essence of The Empress…strong, sensual, desirable…to life on the front label.

The Review

James Halliday – The Weekend Australian Top 100 – 2021 – 96 points

“A truly gorgeous Eden Valley riesling, the bouquet full of citrus blossom, the palate overflowing with lime, grapefruit and Meyer lemon, the high-tensile acidity a perfect anchor for consumption today or 10 years hence. This from a red wine specialist!”
