Spinifex 'Rostein' Riesling 2018

Spinifex's Rostein vineyard is home to two parcels of ancient Riesling, one planted in 1945 and the other in 1956. These parcels produce minuscule yields for Riesling--a paltry 0.8-tonnes per acre is the norm--resulting in wines of atypical concentration.

Spinifex's Rostein vineyard is home to two parcels of ancient Riesling, one planted in 1945 and the other in 1956. These parcels produce minuscule yields for Riesling--a paltry 0.8-tonnes per acre is the norm--resulting in wines of atypical concentration and power. 2015 was the first Spinifex harvest from Rostein, yet the wines have been previously been released (discreetly) as single-vineyard Eden Valley.

It comes predominantly from the oldest vines (from 1945, surely some of Australia's oldest Riesling vines!) and was hand-picked in three passes over a week. 

"From a selection of the Eden Valley vineyard, this has been fermented in 1,000-liter oak and has a rich, complex and flinty feel with attractive, pithy-grapefruit texture and a juicy, fine and long palate that offers plenty of textural build. Tight and powerful drive of phenolics and acidity into the finish. Try from 2022. Vino-lok glass stopper." 94 points, Nick Stock, Jamessuckling.com
