    Description

    Our Burkes Hill Riesling is a story of both a special site and a special friendship.

    The picturesque Burkes Hill vineyard sits just outside the township of Eden Valley, in the Barossa’s high country. A largely dry-grown vineyard on a gentle East facing slope, it produces Riesling of exceptional aromatic perfume and elegance, albeit in microscopic quantities.

    As important as the vineyard itself is, our Burkes Hill Riesling also celebrates the mateship between Rob Gibson and Andrew Wigan. The two share over 40 years each in winemaking in the Barossa. Rob is a dyed-in-the-wool red man, whereas Andrew, a specialist white wine maker, holds a particular pedigree in fine Riesling.

    Fruit grown from Burkes Hill has been entrusted to Andrew each year since 2017, with the mission to capture the ultra-aromatic citrus, orange blossom and bath salt qualities in bottle. This is a style that is also capable of long-term ageing.
