*Limited stock available. For enquiries please call our Tasting Room on (08) 8843 4370*

Our winemakers are very excited to share this wine with you and rightly so, as they believe that 2021 is up there with some of the best vintages (think ‘15, ‘12, ‘05 and ‘02).

“2021 was a stunning vintage, relatively cool with perfect ripening conditions. Our healthy vines produced fruit of exceptional quality, allowing us to create perfectly balanced wines.” Steve Baraglia, Chief Winemaker.

"If there is a better Riesling made in Australia this decade, I want to know about it. $55 might seem hefty for a local Riesling but in world terms, this is criminally cheap. This is so close to perfect, it deserves full points but I think it might just get even better and I need the wiggle room." Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot, Rated 99 Points.

Winemaker's Note:Good winter rain allowed soil profiles to be full, giving the vines a great start to the growing season. Remarkably cool summer followed, providing perfect conditions for healthy vines to produce fruit with high natural acidity and concentrated flavours. One of the better vintages of the last decade.

Named after family matriarch, ‘The Merle’ is selected from the best parcels of Riesling from our Polish Hill River Estate, this release is sourced from 3 blocks. We are aiming for the purest expression of Polish Hill Riesling for this wine.
