The Langmeil dry Riesling comes from the rather cool Eden Valley and is made in a Single vineyard named Wattle Brae, named for the native trees that surround this vineyard. The vines from this single vineyard were planted in 1969, 1970 and 1980 and now have a high average age, which brings depth to the wine. The old, bushy vines result in elegant wines with relatively low alcohol content, a style that Riesling is simply very good at. However, the vinification of the old vines is very contemporary, the cool fermentation produces a fruit-intensive Riesling with the aroma of exotic fruits such as pineapple and lime. On the palate it shows bite, freshness and strength, with a relatively moderate alcohol content of only 11.5%.
Winemaker Paul Lindner describes the 2021 vintage as outstanding and one of his favorites, the perfect growing season ensures balanced wines with fantastic flavor intensity. The Wattle Brae Riesling shows aromas of lime and citrus fruits, and there is also some apple. Fresh on the palate, lively and with the best balance.
In Australia it is often served with Asian dishes, smoked fish and fish soup. An exciting exotic for Europeans.
