Grape variety: Riesling

Winemaking: Riesling from 20 year old vines in Oia Valley. Harvest in the cool early morning and skin contact for 12-14 hours before pressing. Destemmed and pressed, partially fermented and aged (with battonage) in large barrels with cultured yeast. Bottled with very light filtering. Transparent yellow color. Juicy thickness of fruit such as apple compote and peach, sharp acidity that makes you want to purse your mouth with the minerality of flint. It has a very gorgeous and gorgeous impression, but the delicacy of the details is also wonderful. The effect of short skin contact does not appear in the form of color or phenol, and the impression is that it is aromatic.

Wickhams Road

From the fields of Oia Valley. It's easy to drink, has a distinct charm, and exhibits a lot of character and detail with a very strong Riesling DNA. There is a wonderful acid that shines for acid-chasing people like us. Texture and grip? Juiciness, aromatics, citrus fruit?...Of course, this wine has it all. A very powerful and bold statement, complex and easy to drink - a really well made wine. $20? (note: local price) One of the best Rieslings you can drink in the country I live in, Australia? Totally ridiculous!

OwnerWinemaker: FrancoD'Anna Vineyards are located in Hoddle Creek along the rolling hills of Upper Yarra Valley, Victoria. Franco, who has been in the wine business since 1963, said he grew up surrounded by wine. Franco graduated with a master's degree in commerce from the University of Melbourne while working as a purchaser at his family's wine merchant. Then he started planting trees to make the wine he loved. After that, from 2000 to 2002, Mario Marson of MountMary, Peter Dredge of RedEdge, and in 2006, Burgundy, we are devoted to brushing up the wine. In 2004, 03HoddlesCheekChardonnay won two trophies at the Victorian Wine Show, making their presence known. Since 2009, it has been served in both First Class and Business Class lounges on Australia's flagship Qantas Airways. "LessisMore" His winemaking is summarized in this one word. His wine, cultivated and brewed with minimal artificial techniques, faithfully expresses the terroir and is sure to remind the drinker of HoddlesCheek, which has yet to be seen. Winner of Best Value Winery of the Year 2015.
