    Winemaker's Notes:

    Perched on the top of a steep hillside in the East Barossa Ranges, the Steingarten (garden of stones) vineyard looks back down on Rowland Flat. Established in 1962, the vineyard has survived despite the harsh conditions and lack of any irrigation to support the vines during often long, hot summers.

    This small Steingarten vineyard, which was gouged out of an exposed, rocky hillside with it's vines close-planted in classic Mosel fashion, is noted for it's seasonal variation and the outstanding varietal character of its Riesling grapes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale straw-green; spotlessly clean lemon/lime aromas; a focused and intense palate, still developing around its core of citrus fruit and tight acidity.

    The "stone garden" is a schist hillside in western Barossa, where Colin Gramp planted riesling in the early 1960s. The wine from those vines today has one of the most powerful mineral characters of any riesling in Australia, even when blended with a gentler lot from similar soils in Eden Valley. The '06 is saturated with flavor, layered in honey, spice, flowers and schist. The profound depth of flavor needs eight to ten years to show all its nuanced complexity.

    Fresh and vibrant, commanding attention for its range of peach, lime and mineral flavors, melding smoothly as the finish sails on. Drink now through 2015.
