Description

The friendship between Ernst Loosen of the Dr Loosen Estate in Germany, and Peter Barry of Jim Barry Wines, Australia, began in 1995 in London. Forged out of mutual respect for the noble variety Riesling, this collaboration of ideas pays homage to the winemaking techniques used by the Loosen family for generations and the vineyard practices of the Barry family. The German-style Riesling made in Australia is called Wolta Wolta, (Aboriginal for 'good water') in honour of one of the Barry family's most significant and successful land purchases, which later became known as Lodge Hill. The Australian-style Riesling, made with grapes from the Erdener Treppchen Vineyard in Germany, is called Walhalla, (pronounced Valhalla) named after the majestic hall ruled over by Odin in Norse mythology. A wine with history, a great story and the meeting of the Old and New Worlds and all the beauty both have to offer.

Smells

slightly restrained initially but with airtime the bouquet rises, limes, lavender, green apples, and citrus peel.

Tastes

a rich palate with intensity and detail that engages all the senses. A dry style that over-deliverers in excitement and enjoyment factors and with texture and length to complete the picture. An Australian stamp but definitely has a resemblance to Germany. A stunning Riesling and a must-try for all lovers of this incredible variety. No rush to drink as will cellar 10years+ in a temperature-controlled cellar. Serve with your favourite canapes.
