Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown ‘Obstgarten T’ Riesling
Obstgarten, is the German word for orchard, and the wine is so named because the grapes come from a parcel of land at the highest elevations of the King Valley, nestled amongst fruit trees of all varieties. The acidity is absolutely blistering allowing the wine to find an easy balance with a touch of residual sugar though still maintaining a dry style overall. This is a beautiful, elegant style of Riesling from one of Victoria's rising star producers. Drink now or cellar long.
Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown is the wine and life partnership of Tessa Brown, winemaker and viticulturist & Jeremy Schmölzer, Architect. Their vineyard, Thorley, was planted in the highest altitude part of the Beechworth GI in 2014 and 2015. They make wines with precision, balance and drinkability. While waiting for this recently planted vineyard to reach maturity, Schmölzer & Brown source their grapes from other vineyards in the surrounding regions.
