The story of Riesling in Australia is as old as the wine industry itself. The famed Florita Vineyard is synonymous with the classic grape variety and was established by Leo Buring in 1962. In 1986, our family purchased the 80 acre property and began to write the next chapter in the famous vineyard's history. Grapes have been selected from individual rows within the vineyard to create a micro-batch Riesling.

This micro-batch, super-premium Riesling is the fruit of years of patience. We selected individual rows where the terra rossa and loam barely cover the deep limestone below.

To guarantee the freshness of these precious grapes, we carefully picked batches to precisely fill our membrane press in the chill of night and destemmed the bunches without crushing them.

This benchmark dry Riesling has matured under optimum conditions displays the complexities that fine Australian Riesling develops over time.
