Tournon Landsborough Vineyard Riesling

$25.00

Tasting Notes

Riesling is one of the world’s most versatile grape varieties, able to produce wines ranging from bone dry and crisp through to super-sweet and honeyed. It can be a challenge to find a suitable site in the heat of Australia, requiring growers to either find somewhere with altitude or utilise the cooling sea influence in coastal regions.

Description

Description

Michel Chapoutier established Tournon in 2007 shortly after purchasing 50 hectares of property in the heart of the Victorian Pyrenees and Heathcote. He recognized that the cool weather patterns and remarkable diversity of soil and exposures in this region would allow him to make distinctive wines from the Syrah/Shiraz grape of his homeland utilizing his biodynamic winegrowing philosophy. Named after the Hermitage commune, Tournon leads the movement in Australia towards elegant, balanced wines.
