DESCRIPTION:

When this vineyard was first planted in 1988, everyone thought they were crazy! It really lived up to it's name, being in the middle of nowhere. Three decades later, as global warming converges with the trend to cooler climates, this riesling is now firmly established at the top of the class.

"The wine leaps out of the glass with perfumed white citrus florals, spice and grapefruit. A real generosity and poise on the palate. Ripe juicy limes upfront, with a crisp acidity that carries the fruit all the way into a long saline, mineral finish. Elegant yet powerful, it builds layers in the mouth as the wine opens up. Consistent with the now well-established Isolation Ridge style this wine reflects both the low-yielding, dry growing conditions of this site. The balance of pristine fruit flavours and defining acidity result in an exceptional wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared with the confidence as it will continue to develop further complexity for many years to come."
