The Adelaide Hills region is a diverse one, stretching all the way around to the border of the McLaren Vale. Brackenwood sit near this border, on a property planted on quartz and clay.

The entire vineyard is run biodynamically, with all the wines fermented naturally.

I feel this Riesling is one of their strongest wines - aromatically firmly in the citrus spectrum – plenty of white grapefruit pith and lemon peel. There's also a delicate white floral lift – think peony or white rose.

It then has a touch of weight on the mid palate, which makes it seem more gastronomic. Finishes with very cool, racy acidity. More of that grapefruit again. Certainly zingy but not in the stark, hard way of many Clare Valley examples - here the acidity sits well within the body of the wine.
