Winemaker: Ian Hongell
Ian Hongell was formerly chief winemaker for Peter Lehmann and responsible for many of the great Wigan Rieslings released over the last decade. He was thrilled to continue his Riesling legacy with Otherness in tandem with his chief winemaker duties at Torbreck, where he is crafting some of the Barossa’s most exciting wines made from classic Rhone Varietals.
This is a very special vintage of Skuld and defies the usual progress of time expected with an Eden Valley Riesling. It is fine, restrained, elegant. Charlie said “It’s like smelling a Prosecco and drinking a fine Champagne”.
