GRAND BAROSSA Riesling is subtle yellow in color, displaying delicate lifted aromas of lime blossom and citrus fruits. Lemon, lime and hints of passion fruit are in abundance.

The palate is focused, pure and linear with a delicious juicy finish. Elegant and intense
with a touch of minerality and refreshing acidity.

GRAND BAROSSA Riesling draws from the Barossa region’s Germanic history. Barossa (often known as being synonymous with Shiraz) is once again turning heads for its exceptional Riesling. Refreshing, dry and displaying all the delicacy, elegance and finesse of this noble variety, 40% of this wine comes from old vines planted on the Château Tanunda Estate in the 1920s.

Château Tanunda, established in 1890 in the heart of the Barossa Valley,is Australia’s oldest and grandest château. As the cornerstone of the Barossan wine industry, this first-growth château is the site of the first vines planted in the Barossa Valley in 1845 and is today, privately owned by the Geber family.

An excellent match with seafood and light pasta dishes.
