2019 Patrick Coonawarra Riesling
Patrick Tocaciu had been winemaking in the Coonawarra region for decades, before purchasing his first block in 1990. He had held chief winemaking positions at Hollick Wines and Heathfield Ridge Winery. In 2004 the family released their first wines, under the Patrick brand. In 2013 he passed away and eldest son Luke, took over the winemaking reins. Coonawarra Riesling doesn’t really roll off the tongue, but Luke and his father have produced many that have aged really well. We recently had a 2009 and it was great. The 2019 is all lime and orange blossom and bracing acidity.
