Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling 2020



In stock

  • Single vineyard Riesling from Tasmania's Coal River Valley
  • Stunning freshness and acidity complemented by a hint of fruit-sweetness for texture and complexity
  • From a boutique producer whose attention to detail is second to none

‘This wine teeters on the brink between ‘dry’ and ‘off dry’, but simply put it’s just superbly balanced in terms of acid and fruit and residual sugar. A Riesling with natural acid (2.87 PH) and with only 9.1 grams residual it’s an absolute pleasure of a wine that showcases the potential of the Coal River for this variety. Sourced from her own vines in Tea Tree subregion of Coal River, planted in 2004 at a vineyard density 5000 vines per hectare.

Hand picked, destemmed and left on skins for 8 hours before being pressed off to both tank and seasoned barrel (25%) for fermentation. Samantha stopped the tank ferment 2 months post picking and then lees for 3 months, stirring fortnightly.’ – Distributor’s note


Mike Bennie

‘Fleshy riesling, lush and seductive, very come-hither vibes with juiciness, soft texture, gentle sweetness and a really nice cut of acidity underneath. Ripe apples, squeeze of sweet lime and mandarin juice in the mix. Feels comfy, well balanced, open weave and generally just gulpable. Not overly complex or riding on structure, just fun and fresh.’ Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
