2017 Bertrand Bespoke Riesling


I was shown a Riesling from Mt. Alexander today by Bertrand Bespoke winemaker Gilles Lapalus.

The wine spent 8 months on lees in old oak, the aromatics are truly beautiful and the palate has a delicate creaminess with brilliantly integrated acidity.

Gilles also showed me the L’Ecume du Jour ‘Pet Nat’, a savoury and nourishing rosé made from Mourvèdre, a red of the same variety and a very fragrant and refreshing Nebbiolo. All were delicious.

Gilles, formerly winemaker at Sutton Grange is also launching a new project called Maison Lapalus… the 2017 Syrah I just tried was absolutely lovely.

I am a lover of wine with a particular fondness for Riesling. This blog exists as much to organise my thoughts and document my learning process as it does to share 'knowledge'. Thank you for your patience.
