This wine is named after our little girl Alice (6 year), who loves to sing songs she has made up. Like this wine, they are beautiful in their purity and make you smile. When she is old enough, this will be our song to her.

Just 40 minutes south of our Coonawarra vineyards are our Mount Gambier vineyards. Mount Gambier is the coolest region in mainland Australia and has perfect conditions for creating excellent Riesling. Razor-sharp flint rocks rise from the thin soils under vines, and the pure underground water flows from the famous Blue Lake.

This vintage is fresh, crisp, lean with some lovely minerality and lemon/citrus characters.

Food match: Vietnamese prawn and glass noodle salad.

Really superb example of a Riesling

Pale golden colour. Lots of lemon zest on the nose. Dry and crisp. Excellent minerality. Really superb example of a Riesling. Enjoy with fatty fish like tuna or salmon. Rated the 2015 Vintage.

Genuinely impressed by the Riesling from Koonara

Genuinely impressed by the Riesling from Koonara. Another claim to respect Mt Gambier as a region. I tried the Sofiels Gift which is their Coonawarra Riesling also and no question it's much better. Light gold colour. Soft lemon nose and that transfers to the palate as well. Very much a feminine style, less acid. Lots of lemon flavour without the bite. Rated 4.1. At $20 great value. Rated the 2015 Vintage.
