Rag & Bone Riesling
The Magpie Estate started in 1993 by two individuals who are passionate about Rhone wines and Rhone varietals. Famous winemaker Rolf Binder and British wine merchant Noel Young got together to create the estate. It is Rolf’s insight and years of knowledge of the area that make Magpie Estate wines so special. Their wine labels celebrate a superstitious theme, a salute to the eponymous Magpie.
Eden Valley Riesling is prized for its vibrancy, purity and longevity and has produced many of Australia’s greatest Rieslings. The fruit for Rag & Bone is sourced from Binder’s single vineyard, high up on the Eastern side of Eden Valley. Warm days and cool nights ensure that the grapes develop ripe, intense fruit flavours whilst retaining appealing zing and acidity.
The wine is made by winemaker Christa Deans
What does it go with?
Well suited to seafood dishes of course or spicy cuisine but also it can be enjoyed anytime in the company of those who enjoy a quality riesling! Try chilled prawns, Thai curry, fish or chicken laksa and this baby will sing.
