Named after our co-founder Margaret Pooley, this elegant Riesling is a great testament to the wine variety Margaret loved most. Aromas of apple blossom, jasmine and delicate citrus. A richer mouth texture with green apple acidity and a saline finish. Great balance and length of flavour. Will cellar for 15 years plus or just enjoy its freshness now.
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. Today, after more than 20 years of producing premium quality cool-climate wines, and having been awarded numerous trophies and medals at prestigious wine shows, the Pooley family in 2003 established their second main vineyard in the Coal River Valley at the beautiful Belmont Lodge. This is a heritage-listed old Georgian home on the outskirts of Richmond, making for the perfect centre for the third generation of premium Pooley wines to flourish, directed by brother and sister duo- Matthew Pooley as viticulturist and Anna Pooley as winemaker.
