The Range

All Saints premium varietal wines are classic varieties, with fruit carefully selected from the best available vineyard sources and made to be enjoyed with family and friends.

The Wine

2017 was a brilliant vintage in Rutherglen across all varieties and the Riesling is no exception. The fruit was in pristine condition which has delivered a classic All Saints Riesling with crisp citrus characters and a lovely floral aroma. Very refreshing as a young wine but also with great cellaring potential.

Variety

The variety is best known for crisp whites from Germany and the Alsace region of France where it produces classically elegant wines. Sometimes it is allowed to get noble rot on the vine, to produce intensely sweet stickies. Here in Australia, Riesling is grown all over the country with fantastic examples coming from almost every state; always fresh, always zesty and always unoaked. The Clare Valley in South Australia produces our best loved and best known examples. Funnily enough we have a very similar climate to Clare…

Winemaking

The winemaking for All Saints Estate Riesling is all about maximising fresh fruit flavours and crisp acidity. We pick the fruit in the cool of the night and then treat it as gently as possible to minimise any harsh phenolic extraction and deliver a classic Riesling with fresh fruit characters and lovely floral aroma. Following gentle fining and filtering, it is then straight into the bottle and released in Spring.

Food Matching

Riesling is just so versatile with food and can match a range of flavours. It is just stunning with Australia’s fresh seafood. Try it with oysters straight out of the shell or simply grilled whiting fillets with fresh salad and a squeeze of lemon or lime. Aged Riesling is an acquired taste and as the wine appears fuller and softer with age, it can handle richer food, although fish is still the best choice. Try poached salmon or trout.

Cellaring Potential

With its delicate structure, combining clean, lifted fruit flavours and crisp acid, this Riesling is perfect for the cellar. There is a bit of a developing tradition for cellaring Rieslings in Australia. Buy a case, drink six over the first year, two the next, (when the wine is beginning to develop) and keep the remaining four for as long as you can manage.

"A fleshier style and slightly broad on the palate, yet fresh with preserved lemon, dried apple and spices. Best in its youth." 
Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
