Jacob's Creek Barossa Steingarten Riesling 2002
from Barossa Valley, Australia
Perched on the top of a steep hillside in the East Barossa Ranges, the Steingarten (garden of stones) vineyard looks back down on Rowland Flat. Established in 1962, the vineyard has survived despite the harsh conditions and lack of any irrigation to support the vines during often long, hot summers.
This small Steingarten vineyard, which was gouged out of an exposed, rocky hillside with it's vines close-planted in classic Mosel fashion, is noted for it's seasonal variation and the outstanding varietal character of its Riesling grapes
"...Dense and pure on the mouth, the flavors are ceaseless in the end, a full second half of the flavor after you swallow the first... a classical, magical riesling."
