Around the same time that Barossa Boy Wines was launched, little Tilly, the Boy’s first child, was born. She’s a seventh-generation Burge of the Barossa terroir, yet her own character is as unique as a single vintage. This Riesling is a tribute to the wild-haired, spirited girl and all her stories yet to be told.

TASTING NOTES

Lifted aromas of lemon zest, and lime cordial with hints of white blossom. The palate is fine and crisp, with typical Eden Valley flavours of limes and pink grapefruit. The wine has a chalky texture with great acid drive and the finish is long and lively.

Best enjoyed with seared scallops, freshly shucked oysters or a simple watermelon, mint and feta salad.

WINEMAKING

A wonderful example of old vine dry-grown hand-picked Riesling harvested at optimal ripeness in the cool of the morning. Gentle whole bunch pressing ensured all the natural flavours were preserved before the commencement of fermentation. Fermentation was controlled at low temperatures to aid in aroma retention and intensity.

This wine is an elegant Riesling that while drinking nicely now, will also develop gracefully with time and reward patience.
