Pooley “Margaret Pooley Tribute” Riesling

Region: Coal River Valley, Tasmania

Viticulture: Conventional

Winemaker: Anna Pooley

Established Date: 1985

Named after the co-founder Margaret Pooley, this elegant Riesling is a great testament to the wine variety Margaret loved most. Aromas of apple blossom, jasmine and delicate citrus. A richer mouth texture with green apple acidity and a saline finish. Great balance and length of flavour. Will cellar for 15 years plus or just enjoy its freshness now.

Sommelier’s Recommendation

A wine made only in exceptional years, and tiny qualities… we picked a winner. A nose of granny smith apples, citrus and salinity that is prominent from the first sip. Lovely acid and mouthfeel give this wine a nice long finish. Crisp & refreshing. Glass of this on a warm summers day go hand in hand.

Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, known for their Single Vineyard varietals of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. The vineyard was first planted in 1985 by Margaret & Dennis Pooley. It is now run by third generation Pooleys, with winemaker Anna Pooley at the helm of the cellar and her brother Matt as viticulturalist. These two are unstoppable, having been awarded numerous trophies and medals at wine shows.
