Egon Müller’s Rieslings from the Saar in Mosel consistently rate amongst the most celebrated in the world. These wines will set you back (but make you happy about it), and we are therefore continuously thankful that Egon agreed to collaborate down under. Michael Andrewartha (of East End Cellars) first partnered up with Egon in 2005 with the inaugural vintage of Kanta. This was after a 3 year wait to find the perfect vineyard.
The Riesling heads of Australia may have turned their heads when they announced that this vineyard was in the Adelaide Hills, a region more famous for Sparkling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. However when one of the most highly regarded Riesling producers in the world lands on a spot, you’ve got to get excited for the result.
