Wine comments

Max & Me 2018 ‘Mirooloo Road’ is the second release of our Eden Valley Riesling. Selection of the grapes is paramount to this wine, and Michael Mason has it ‘going on’ when it comes to fruit source. The site (on Mirooloo Road) is cool and with a southerly aspect and good water availability. Great things to keep plushness in the ripening berries and a healthy canopy, but the site still provides ample natural restraint through the limited fertility and soil depth of the quartz and mica schist underlain with shallow sandstone bedrock.

Flavour intensity is a focus in the winemaking here. Allowing the grapes to ripen lifts the flavour-weight and softens the acid, and by utilising some of the light pressings in the cuvée and fermenting through to dryness, a nice savoury counter to the naturally fragrant lime-citrus characteristics of the Riesling juice balances the palate.
