The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2013 Henty Riesling

Cellar Door

Grown at Barretts Vineyard in the far south-west of Victoria, at Gorae West. This will be the last riesling from this 30 yaer old vineyard we think, as the grower has decided to call stumps and pull it out. A great shame but illustrative of the pressures of grapegrowing. It is a warm, early vintage to end on, and the ripe grapes show a deliciously full spectrum of citrus and tropical flavours. A tiny amount of residual sugar keeps the acid in check, but the main play is the texture and crunch of fully ripened riesling grapes from a great vineyard.

– Vine age: approx 31 years
