The trophy winner for Best Riesling at the 2018 Melbourne Wine Awards, the Eddystone Point Riesling is Bay of Fires' carefully crafted modern Tassie white.
Showing a sense of balance that makes for sublime drinkability, this has just a little sweetness to balance out the sky-high acidity, the result a wine of uncommon delicacy and pure flavours.

Expert Reviews

96 Points - Royal Melbourne Wine ShowTrophy for Best Riesling
96 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionSuperlative riesling. Flow and go. A thrust of candied citrus flavours, Granny Smith apple and grapefruit pulp is countered by a parry of juicy, free-flowing acidity. The finish is stupendously long. Nothing grates. Nothing is out of place. Mellifluous! Just a joy to drink!

How's it taste?

The perfumed citrus blossom, and green apple aromas of this delicious Riesling are followed by a juicy, vibrant palate with luscious citrus and crisp acidity for drinkability when young but also rewards after a few years in the cellar.

How was it made?

A cooler than average winter saw cold temperatures continue throughout October, and kicked the V18 growing season off to slow start. But it was a lucky year, with damage suffered neither from early frosts in some pockets, nor the freak hailstorm which hit the East coast mid-January. Instead, warmer than average temperatures continued from November and good flowering conditions made for a pleasant change. The unusually warm Summer and Spring conditions were able to ripen larger than average crops successfully, and vintage was done and dusted in the very compact time frame of just 5 weeks. The fruit for this Riesling was harvested from the Coal River and Derwent Valley regions of Tasmania.

Who made it?

Bay of Fires Wines was founded in the 1990s by a team of dedicated winemaking and viticultural professionals, who believed Tasmania would one day become the pre-eminent Australian region to produce cool-climate Tasmanian wines. Based around fruit from the Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania, but bringing together grapes from all over the Apple Isle, this label features high quality wines that typify the best of Tasmania.
