This is exceptional Tasmanian Riesling from Sam Connew. This is a wine of texture and power.

The nose is a combination of jasmin, lemon blossom aromatics and lime.

On the palate there's mandarin and pink grapefruit and a soft talcy texture.

The energetic acidity is balanced by a lick of residual sugar. Glorious.

Beautifully packaged and delivered across Sydney Metro.

Description

Stargazer Single Vineyard Riesling 2020

This wine teeters on the brink between ‘dry’ and ‘off dry’, but simply put it’s just superbly balanced in terms of acid and fruit/residual sugar. 

The 2020 sees the needle moving slightly towards a drier style albeit it’s of course a matter of perception. All the grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the Tea Tree subregion of Coal River, planted in 2004 at a vineyard density 5000 vines per hectare. Soil type as described by Samantha is predominantly dark clay on Jurassic dolerite.

Hand picked, destemmed and left on skins for 8 hours before being pressed off to both tank and seasoned barrel (13%) for fermentation.

A small parcel of Riesling is also fermented on skins then added to the overall blend later. Samantha stops the tank ferment when she feels the sugar to acid balance is right (approx two months) and then leaves on lees for 3 months, stirring fortnightly.

A Riesling with natural acid (2.94 PH) and with 7.4g grams residual it’s an absolute pleasure of a wine that showcases the potential of the Coal River for this variety.

About Stargazer

2012 marked the first vintage of Stargazer. For the next few years Samantha purchased fruit from Huon Valley and Derwent but had a passion for the Coal River Valley. She passionately believes that for her this subregion was the ideal spot to be able to make the kind of Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir she wanted.

In 2016 this dream became a reality and she purchased an 11 hectare site, of which 1 hectare was planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then she has planted 2 more hectares compromising of Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with another 2 planned for planting in 2021. She is still buying some fruit from growers while these new plantings establish themselves.

Samantha makes the wines at Pooley currently, just a few miles up the road from her vineyard. The range is both expressive and concise. All wild fermentations, no added acid, gentle use of oak.
