After a 10-year search, winemaker Adam Richardson selected the very special terroir of his Hard Hill Road Vineyard site for the production of his Chockstone and Hard Hill Road labels. With its own special microclimate, the Hard Hill Road Vineyard’s cool ripening conditions and naturally low-yielding vines produce wines with layers of intense flavours and a velvety structure. Like many of the best wines in this historic region, A.T. Richardson wines are approachable in their youth and possess the potential to age gracefully. In A.T. Richardson Wines, you will taste the rich and enticing flavours of the Grampians and get caught up in the excitement of wine, adventure, and life.
Bone dry, yet intensely fruity. It's not an easy matter to achieve, and the Grampians can lay claim to be the most successful region in Victoria for riesling other than Henty. Acidity is one of the keys, climate the driver. Screwcap. Drink by: 2033; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
This is a delicious young riesling which is dry and yet inviting - without austerity. Dried herb, creamy yeast and dried wildflower aromas lead into a finely textured palate with crisp acidity and a long follow-through. The wine is in excellent harmony throughout. Rating: 95 Points & 5 Stars; Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine
Light yellow hue with a dried herb, creamy yeast and dried wildflower bouquet. It's a lovely nose. The palate is likewise attractive, not bone-dry but slightly juicy, with crisp acidity drying the after-palate, the follow-through satisfyingly fruity and harmonious. A gorgeous riesling. Ranked #1 of 21 Victorian 2018 Rieslings. Drink: 2018 to 2028; Price: $20.00; Alcohol: 11.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
