Overview
This range of wines, named after fashionable fabrics, feature the iconic paisley design for which the company is named. The pattern became synonymous with the Scottish town of Paisley situated close to Glasgow and was the birthplace of Kirsten's great-great grandfather, who emigrated to Adelaide in 1839.

Grape & Region
100% Riesling from Eden Valley

Vineyard
Some of the greatest Rieslings in Australia come from the Eden Valley, the high altitude region of the Barossa. The Cashmere Riesling comes from two vineyards situated a stones throw from the Eden Valley village, at an altitude of over 440m. With the extremely unfertile sandy/slate soils and South facing block, the vines work hard, with the low vigour vines producing fruit with great varietal definition, immense character and flavour. One batch was hand picked due to the difficult vineyard terrain.

Vintage Conditions
2021 will be remembered as one of the great Eden Valley Riesling vintages. With good winter rains and quite a cool growing season, the Riesling grapes matured slowly, accumulating flavour while retaining good acidity. This slow ripening allowed picking at optimum maturity with amazing balance of natural acidity and delicate fruit flavours.

Derek's Tasting Note
A hue of pale straw and tints of green. The nose has amazing lift with lemon balm, lime and orange blossoms. The palate is medium bodied but full of flavour with excellent sweet fruit with varietal characters of passionfruit, lime sorbet and lychee. Mineral notes with a river pebble texture are evident whilst the fruit and acid are well balanced. Citrus and orange blossoms linger with poise and balance.
