The Wine

96 points, James Halliday, January 2021 "The 2020 Pooley Riesling comes entirely from estate vineyards being a blend of fruit from younger vines from Butchers Hill (60%) and Cooinda Vale (40%). Whole bunch pressed and aged for 5 months on fine lees before bottling. An ideal vintage for Tasmania and for the Coal River region this wine carries 11.8% alc, pH 2.99 with residual sugar of 8 g/l balanced by very refreshing high acidity of 9.1 g/l TA. 'From the estate Butcher's Hill and Cooinda Vale Vineyards, whole-bunch pressed and fermented with a specialised (riesling) yeast. A lovely wine, that delicately paints the mouth with its kaffir-lime-juice flavours, cosseted with layered, harmonious acidity. Great length too. Drink by 2033."

About the Wine Maker

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. In 2003, John Pooley, son of Denis and Margaret, and his wife Libby bought Belmont Lodge, a heritage-listed Georgian home on the outskirts of Richmond. They have been lovingly renovating this second Pooley Wines Coal River Valley property, and planted vines on nearby Butchers Hill. In 2007 the first vintage of Pinot was produced from this steep vineyard site that overlooks the township of Richmond.
