Hurry! Last bottles!

Five years ago, anticipating its superior ageability, we decided to set aside 400 bottles only of the 2015 Zeitpunkt* Organic Riesling for careful cellaring. The wait is finally over and oh-so worth it!

INTRODUCING: ZEITPUNKT* REDUX 2015!

“Zeitpunkt” is German for moment in time {literally - time point}. This wine is a puritanical snapshot of moment inn history: 5th March 2015... that's when we decided the time was right to capture these pristine Riesling grapes, organically grown in Southern Eden Valley soils. Our mission for Zeitpunkt* has always been the same: get out of the way and let the vines do the talking.

94/100 "Light colour, belying its age. The bouquet has some buttered toast nuances that are developed and alluring, minerals too, and the wine is at that lovely in-between stage, half way between youthful freshness and developed complexity. A very attractive wine." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

94/100 "Hand-picked from the Ahrens Vineyard. A fine, slatey, zesty wine, high on finesse, but with a fierce whip of flavour to close." - Campbell Mattison, Halliday

93/100 "Hardly showing any age at all with just a hint of TDN (1,1,6-trimethyl-1,2-dihydronaphthalene) influenced “kerosene,” otherwise still showing a clean set of heels: lime and cumquat citrus, yellows floral, talc and wet slate. Still pure and delicate, espousing subtle texture with mineral, stony hints. Acidity still sings brightly and balanced. Have no problems putting it away for another 5 years." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

Hot 100 SA Wines "Intense brown lime cordial notes, musk confection, showing a balance of lightness and fruit. So many playful elements in this wine that are made complex by maturity, almost queen-like in personality" - Adelaide Review
