Specialising in cool climate wine, Delatite’s winery and vineyards are on rolling hills at the base of Mt Buller in north-east Victoria. It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Our approach to winemaking has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years.
The fruit for our Late Harvest is picked later than the normal Riesling, this allows the fruit to ripen further and to concentrate the flavours in the berries as the berries slightly shrivel and lose moisture.
Riesling is truly this estate's tour de force. Lime cordial, tonic, grapefruit and other citrus fruit allusions stream across pumice and wet rocky mineral tension, sublimating sweetness to the point of palpable dryness. This is very fine. Balletic, even. Vibrant but juicy, Nothing brittle. Streamlined and long. Delicious.
