A blend of Riesling from Butcher’s Hill (60%) and Cooinda Vale (40%).
The Colour is pale white with a green hue. Initially, the nose is a little shy (more reminiscent of Cooinda Vale) with notes of jasmine and orange blossom. The palate is more flamboyant (reminiscent of Butcher’s Hill) with notes of lime zest, red apples, and green melon. The palate has great drive and intensity. Very Germanic.
Pooley Wines was established in 1985 when the late Denis and Margaret Pooley planted ten rows of Riesling and seven rows of Pinot Noir on their 16-hectare farm at Cooinda Vale in the Coal River Valley in southern Tasmania.
