Brand Info In 1986, Geoff Hardy finally found the ideal location for producing cool climate award-winning wines in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.

Story  The Riesling grapes for this Autumn Harvest were handpicked 11 weeks later than we normally would for a dry white wine. The additional hanging time accompanied by a natural botrytis infection have provided this wine with luscious sweetness and lingering intensity.

Vintage The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose The nose offers beautifully attractive aromas of ripe nectarines and white peaches.

Palate The palate delivers a fabulous mouthful of rich, sweet peachy flavours with crisp acidity on the finish.

Food Pairings Try this wine with a pomegranate Eton Mess.
