Riesling is universally regarded as one of the world’s classic grape varieties and is believed to truly reflect its provenance. Riesling is the wine that winemakers love to drink.
Renowned wine critic Jancis Robinson calls it one of her ‘great wine heroes’ and says, ‘This is the wine to drink while writing or reading; it refreshes the palate and sharpens the brain.’
Riesling has a long history in Australia. It likely arrived with the First Fleet and was one of the original grape varieties planted. The first recorded plantings were in 1838 near Penrith, New South Wales.
Australia is second only to Germany in terms of total plantings of Riesling. It is grown in many areas across the country, although certain regions are particularly known for this variety, such as Clare Valley and Eden Valley, which together account for one-third of all Australian Riesling production.
