A wine of immense drive and purity. Shows the hallmarks of a youthful but restrained Florita with a promise of more to come. Lime citrus is dominant with elements of pear and rose water with long lingering acidity.

Riesling

The story of Riesling in Australia is as old as the wine industry itself. Aficionados will remember the legendary “dry white hock style” wines from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The greatest Rieslings of that era came from the revered ‘Florita’ vineyard—a seventy five acre block established one mile south of the Watervale township near Clare in the early 1960’s. Jim Barry’s sons purchased The Florita vineyard in 1986. Leo Buring first registered ‘The Florita’ trademark in 1946, and Mark, Peter and John were forced to wait, somewhat anxiously, until finally procuring it in 2004.
