Based in Nagambie, Central Victoria, Tar & Roses focuses on wines inspired by classic varietals of the Mediterranean. The name derives from the signature characteristics of Nebbiolo, while also ties back to the winemaking team behind the venture; the legendary late Don Lewis and Narelle King.
The 2022 Tar & Roses Lewis Riesling is made from the carefully selected grapes from Lewis block on the Mitchelton vineyard in Central Victoria. A lovely lifted Riesling, with attractive white blossom and orange skin characters on the nose. The palate flows well with generous fruit sweetness, citrus pith flavours combined with gentle acid complexity, textural phenolics with a clean finish. A complex and vibrant Riesling that offers plenty of enjoyment in the short to medium-term.
"96 Points. A wine named for star riesling maker Don Lewis that lives up to the name in both fruit concentration and class. At once delicate and floral but with a solid core of pure, intense lime and citrus. A pitch-perfect riesling embracing a touch of savoury lemongrass, a pinch of spice and a brisk sherbety tingle set to some racy acidity. Age will be kind to it. Screw cap. 12.5% alc. Drink: 2022 - 2032."- Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion 2024.
