Common in Europe where focus is on regionality rather than variety, field blends are slowly receiving the recognition they deserve in Australia. Characteristics of field blends speak of the terroir and region rather than any one grape; this one is that of Orange NSW.
This is version 2 of our white field blends and this time in a Riesling bottle. It’s Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc blended together, from the Borrodell vineyard in Orange at an 1000 m elevation. Flavours are musk lolly with a touch of Turkish delight. Not acid and thankfully not sweet; it’s between the two taste sensations, maybe soft is the appropriate word.
A drink now wine, not made to be held onto longer than a few years, after that they lose their fresh zip. Pairs well with a salad of beetroot and salmon, fresh oysters or on any hot afternoon.
Review: 95/100 (5 Gold Stars) The Real Review 2020
Confident and youthful, pale-yellow colour. Minerals, raw nuts and lemon rind; a compelling bouquet. The mid-palate carries weight and richness; a leesy charm with a mix of melon, stone fruit and citrus fruits. A seriously delicious wine. Excellent value. Nick Butler
