- An elegant and crisp dry Riesling with vibrant lime, mandarin and floral notes. The crisp acidity and mineral finish give the wine freshness and complexity.
In the early 1970s legendary winemaker Max Schubert began the quest for a range of white wines that would equal the already famous red wines of Penfolds. One of the first wines from these trials was named Autumn Riesling. Some of Penfolds’ finest riesling parcels in the early 1970s were bottled under this label and the Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling acknowledges the original 1972 vintage by closely adhering to the original packaging with a fitting 'retro' label. The wine pays further homage to the original through being specially crafted to develop further with bottle age.
A fine talc acid structure gives great length of flavour and 'linearity' to this wine and the small addition of traminer makes it a truly unique offering.
Maturation:Bottled soon after completion of fermentation, to preserve freshness and minerality.
Cellaring Potential:5 years
