Description

The Caveat vineyard in the Strathbogie Ranges, sits at the end of a supposedly sealed road that wanders north from Yea climbing to the elevated granite soils that sit 600m above sea level. Generally 5 degrees cooler than the valley floor, this small vineyard is surrounded by  rather unforgiving grazing land.  With vines planted in 1983 this is a mature and unique site that has a wonderful range of classic Riesling aromas - floral/talc, citrus and orange blossom, ginger spice and a fresh, pithy texture. Balanced by a whisper of retained grape must this is gorgeous sunshine wine.

The RS number changes every year and refers to the amount of residual sugar retained in the wine after fermentation is arrested. There is no fixed number in mind, each year it is measured only once the wine has been tasted and held at its ideal balance.
