A White field blend consisting of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier which has a floral aromatic nose of jasmine and musk.The palate is also aromatic with flavours of lemon and melon coming through. It’s mouth filling and intense with a long crisp finish.

David Ritchie’s parents originally planted the property on the advice of Jim Irvine (the Merlot master) in the 60s. The cool climate of Mt. Buller was perfect for aromatic varieties. Converting the farming to biodynamics in 2005, their focus is still cool climate varieties & showcasing classic examples of wines from the Alpine Valleys. David is constantly trying to get them more ethical, whether that is through farming or moving the winery to operate carbon neutral. The Alpine Valleys are not very well represented, even though they are so cool, so are perfect for crunchy and fresher wines.
