Tim Smith focuses on making wines from the regions time proven varietals of Mataro, Grenache and Shiraz, with exceptional parcels of fruit from Eden Valley used for his Riesling and Viognier. The fruit for the Tim Smith Wines Riesling is hand-picked and comes from a single low-yielding vineyard planted in 1922, at an elevation of 450m above sea level.
Deep red. Heady aromas of strawberry and kirsch. The strawberry component is a result of whole bunch fermentation with the Grenache component. Spicy and layered, the medium bodied palate has earthy Mataro richness and length. Fruit flavours are in the dried fig spectrum. Soft, mature and savoury skin tannins define the finish.
