A WINE RIDDLE

Q. What do you get when you cross a Viognier with a Riesling?

A. Riognier or, to be more precise, Grand Riognier.

In 2017, Wayne Elson, winemaker at Roenfeldt Hill in the Barossa Valley experimented with co-fermenting a 50/50 blend of Riesling, sourced from Eden Valley, and Viognier from the Barossa Valley.

He was so pleased with the results that he released his first commercial vintage of this wine in 2018.

Wayne believes that this is the only Riognier in Australia and possibly the only such blend in the world.

So – how does it taste?

The wine has an inviting light gold colour and a nose of subtle lemon notes accompanied by honey and cream.

The palate is truly fascinating with the Viognier tenor harmonizing delightfully with the Riesling soprano.

A mildly oily mouth feel introduces layers of lime marmalade, grapefruit, white peach, honey and some wet-stone minerality.

The acidity is total controlled as is the alcohol at 12.5% ABV.

This Grand Riognier is so easy to drink that, after the last drops are squeezed out of the bottle, you sigh thinking “I should have ordered 2 bottles or even half a dozen” and, at $20 a bottle, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.

This blend of Viognier and Riesling will make this wine a top choice for pairing with a wide range of white meats and fish dishes.

Two final thoughts.

1 This is a fun wine for the Joker in the pack at blind wine tastings with friends. Good palates will detect the Viognier but where to from there?

2 It will be no surprise that, at AWESOMME, we love good portmanteaux (awesome + sommelier).
Riognier is a very clever portmanteau (Riesling + Viognier).

Cheers

Have you tried Australian Zinfandel before?⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I first tried Zinfandel when I went to America and I fell in love. Something about this grape has always held a place in my mind. But it is quite hard to find in Australia! So when I was sent some wines from #roenfeldthillwines to try, I couldn't wait to give their Zinfandel blends a go!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I hadn't heard of Roenfeldt Hill Wines before so I was very excited to try their wines. The Roennfeldts are sixth-generation descendants of Christian Heinrich and Louisa Catharina Roennfeldt, who migrated to South Australia from Cropelin, Germany, in 1849. They are one of the few growers of Zinfandel in South Australia and this is one of Wayne's favourite varieties to work with.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
An ode to their first tractor a Zetor 35-45, this wine has been basket-pressed before being placed in French and American Oak for 32 months. It is a blend of Zinfandel, Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro offering a wealth of flavours.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The Roenfeldt Hill Wines ZSGM 2017 is a beautiful and unique blend offering something you might not usually get out of the Barossa Valley. It is complex yet smooth and beautifully balanced with flavours of blackcurrant, cherry and spice. This wine is perfect with food and would be a great match to roast lamb or beef. ⁠⁠
