G.D. Vajra Langhe Riesling Pètracine 2016
Showing a delicate greenish tint when young, it leaves space for straw yellow hues as it develops. Yellow peaches and apricots in its youth, with delicate floral and citrus notes at its mid-life while showing minerality and flint stone with age. On the palate it is harmonious and geometrically precise, almost austere, surprises you with its refreshing and balanced acidity.
Originally born in Western Australia, Gary completed a Bachelor of Literature, before moving to Japan to study and work as an English teacher. Upon returning to Australia he had an epiphany during a brief stint as a Japanese speaking tour guide in Queensland, and began work in the vineyards of Margaret River.
A five week vintage posting at Ridge Vineyards California turned into a 2 year full time position under the tutelage of winemaker Paul Draper and from there Gary has worked in Oregon and various regions within Australia. The Jamsheed label began in 2003 with a focus on single vineyard Syrahs and aromatic whites from unique sites in Victoria.
