2021 In The Flowers Riesling
Ooft! Just when we’d written off Eden Valley Riesling as one dimensional here it comes in 4D. Magnolia! Lime zest! Yuzu! Quince! An aromatic bomb with a heavy lick of acid, but not in an overpowering way. Lees stirring adds a purposeful savoury note. Dry? Yes! Life changing? Probably.
Worlds Apart is the personal label of winemaker Louis Schofield and his partner Hannah Jeffery. Of note, they worked with the late Taras Ochota producing wines under the Ochota Barrels label. World’s Apart employs the same philosophy, low intervention but a meticulous attention to detail. Heaps of personality and drive.
