Winemaker: Ian Hongell
Hand-picked in the early hours of 5th March, 2020, the cool, precise lime and lemongrass flavours were captured by immediate gentle cool pressing in the Torbreck cellar. This has a brilliant cool purity, laser-like focus and the talcy mineral acidity of the best of High Eden.
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.
