The Judge

‘The Judge’ is named after Joanne’s (nee Marshall) late grandfather The Honorable John Marshall who was judge of South Australia’s liquor licensing court, juvenile court and the federal family court of Australia. John was an avid lover of Eden Valley Rieslings and would have ‘judged’ this a superior wine.

Tasting Notes

This wine, sourced from premium vineyards in Eden Valley, has lifted aromas of cherry blossom, lemon sherbet and hints of freshly squeezed lime juice. The palate is bright and lively with lemon sherbet and delicate slate minerality throughout the flavor profile. Racy acidity lines the palate with precision and provides a wine of amazing length and intensity. Perfect drinking now or can be or aged to perfection over the next 5-10 years.

Vintage Conditions

Good winter and spring rainfall meant the vines were primed for summer. 2014 vintage started off very hot but was interrupted with some heavy rainfall mid-February. Mild summer temperatures followed providing for slow ripening which allowed for intense fruit flavours, balanced with good colour and acidity.

Vineyard Region

Angaston, Eden Valley is recognised as one of Australia’s premium areas for Riesling. It is a cool climate region nestled between 400 and 600 metres in the Barossa Range, and is part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Cool with medium rainfall and warm to hot summers, however the vineyard lies in a secluded valley and consequently ripens much later than surrounding areas. This vineyard produces Rieslings with pristine quality reflected in their minerality, citrus fruit & spiciness, holding great finesse particularly as they age
