Product Description

Koonara Sofiels Gift Riesling

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Region  Mt Gambier

Winemaker Peter Douglas

Colour  Medium straw with green edges.

Bouquet Lemon sherbet, zesty lime and pineapple hints on the nose.

Palate Being from the ultra-cool Mount Gambier (much colder than Canberra during the growing period), this wine shows huge amounts of blossom,
pear and lime sherbet.  The flint and minerally notes are a hint that it will age for well over 20 years.

Food Match Vietnamese prawn and glass noodle salad

This Riesling is named after the angel of nature Sofiel because of the mineral flavours riesling can take from the soil. The angel Sofiel inspires people to get in touch with the earth.

WineState review:
"Fresh, Crisp, lean and youthful style with some lovely minerality and Lemon/citrus characters. Very cool-climate, very delicate; needs time to develop.”

Winemakers Comments:
The bible of Viticulture, Gladstones Wine, Terroir and Climate Change states perfect Riesling is grown between 1200 and 1200 Effective Degree Days (average temerature). Mount Gambier’s EDD is 1145. It’s the coolest region in mainland Australia, Mount Gambier Riesling shows the true mineral character of it’s harsh rocky soil.
