Jim Barry The Florita Riesling 2016

The famed Florita Vineyard is synonymous with the classic Riesling grape variety and was planted by Leo Buring in 1962. In 1986, the Barry family acquired the 32 hectare property.

Florita is Spanish for 'little flower' and the first release of this micro-batch of premium Riesling was in 2004; it was the fruit of years of patience. Individual rows are selected where the terra rossa and loam soils barely cover the deep limestone below and the vines deliver a wonderful elegance to the fruit.

A wine of immense purity and drive that is bursting with intense aromas of rose water, lime and hints of freshly cut Nashi pear. The tightly wound palate delivers laser focussed acidity and crisp lime juice at its core and shows all the hallmarks of a youthful but restrained Florita Riesling. Pure with a long, citrus finish.
