ATR wines 'Chockstone' Grampians Riesling 2022


A native of Western Australia, Adam Richardson has been making wine professionally since 1995. In addition to crafting wines for the A.T. Richardson brand, he has held various senior international winemaking and management roles including most recently, chief winemaker for Treasury Wine Estates Americas and vice president of international winemaking for the major California-based The Wine Group. In these roles, Adam was fortunate enough to visit and produce wines from almost every major wine appellation around the world and by the end of his career saw his name on the back label of about 70 million bottles of wine!

The Chockstone Riesling is always refined and minerally. The delicate aromas of wildflowers and citrus blossoms that dominate the palate are a result of the ironstone and quartz soils. The Chockstone style combines a firm acidity and flinty dry finish that produces a focused and seamless palate.

I've had this vintage a number of times over this year and for mine the best Victorian riesling I've tried in the past 12 months (yep even toping Crawford River's Young Vines). It's got the usual acid and mineral backbone but there's a weight of ripe fruit fruit that one would typically not expect. Very complete and balanced.
