Riesling (100%), CANBERRA DISTRICT


The 2022/2023 growing season commenced with good spring rains, giving way to a temperate summer.  Mild, cool conditions through to harvest yielded high quality, disease-free fruit.


Riesling is grown on deep reddish granite loam at Murrumbateman. 


The grapes were harvested for optimum freshness and vibrancy in mid-March 2023.  Whole-bunch pressed oxidatively, the juice was inoculated with a neutral yeast strain and fermented at 17 deg Celsius, before clarification and bottling in June 2023.


This dry style is clean on the nose with aromas of white flowers and lime-dominant citrus. The bouquet is threaded with herbal, floral and mineral notes. A crunchy mid-palate yields to a bright and lingering finish.

Praise for the 2023:

"The aromas are on the big side, welcoming bath salts and talc notes, lime citrus, a hint of apricot for interest and complexity. The palate is luxuriously ripe and poised, even structured, mouth-filling and long with great balance of apricot and lime flavours. Volume without heaviness, it has got the signature of quality in its makeup as do so many of Collector's wines. 94pts." Rob Geddes
