John Innes is a 30-year veteran of Coonawarra, with a deep knowledge of it and the surrounding region that he is putting to good use with his Ottelia project. Produced from grapes grown on the Innes family vineyard in Mount Gambier, the 2021 Ottelia Mount Gambier Riesling is another intensely flavoured and complex Riesling.
"A fascinating expression of Australian Riesling here - very different from the South Australian norm and shares plenty with its brethren across Bass Strait. It’s also from the largely unheralded region of Mt Gambier - a perfect example of why its great to step off the beaten track every once in a while. Pale in colour, the wine displays an array of exotic yet subtle perfumes. Pear, preserved lemon, musk, chalk and spice - as you can guess, plenty to see here. The palate is one for all the acid junkies out there - dry and with spine tingling acidity; the fruit detailed in the chalky, citrus spectrum before a fine, long and dainty finish. Mouthwateringly delicious, it screams out for spicy Vietnamese spring rolls. 92 Points. Drink: 2021 - 2025"- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com.
