The Australian face of the Loosen/Barry collaboration. Ernie selected a patch of south-facing vines and wild-fermented and matured the wine in a foudre (shipped from his cellar) for 12 months, then 10 months in tank. Magic in the mouth; simply beautiful. Its vinification looks back centuries to when German riesling was released after 50 years’ maturation. 12.5% alc, screwcap.
98 points. James Halliday, The Australian
Very light to pale colour. The bouquet is curiously sweaty and reductive, with slaty mineral notes and the entire package is reserved and backward in development. Very fine, elusive perfumes. The palate is very slightly off-dry and deftly combines delicacy and intensity. A thoroughly delicious, beguiling, mouth-watering riesling that totally belies its Clare Valley origins. An exciting wine. A real stunner.
