Reviews of the 2018 vintage included below;
"96 Points. Bone dry, yet intensely fruity. It's not an easy matter to achieve, and the Grampians can lay claim to be the most successful region in Victoria for riesling other than Henty. Acidity is one of the keys, climate the driver. Screwcap. 11.5% alc. To 2033. $20"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.
"95 Points. This is a delicious young riesling which is dry and yet inviting - without austerity. Dried herb, creamy yeast and dried wildflower aromas lead into a finely textured palate with crisp acidity and a long follow-through. The wine is in excellent harmony throughout" - Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine, Feb / March 2019.
After a 10-year search, winemaker Adam Richardson selected the very special terroir of his Hard Hill Road Vineyard site for the production of his Chockstone and Hard Hill Road labels. With its own special microclimate, the Hard Hill Road Vineyard’s cool ripening conditions and naturally low-yielding vines produce wines with layers of intense flavours and a velvety structure. Like many of the best wines in this historic region, A.T. Richardson’s wines are approachable in their youth, and possess the potential to age gracefully.
