February 7th 2017
For those excellent folks down at Toorak Cellars, February is a time to reflect on the year ahead and to celebrate the greatest grape variety in the world: Riesling.
Hunter Smith of Frankland Estate produces some of Australia’s most captivating examples of the grape, with the single vineyards of Isolation Ridge and Poison Hill producing wines that speak loudly of the dirt from which they were grown.
Every time these wines are released, they send a powerfully delicious reminder that the notion of terroir is very much alive in Australia.
