White Wine

Riesling has been central to the story of Galafrey since its foundation in the early days of the Mount Barker wine region. When owner Kim Tyrer assumed winemaking duties, the varietal became an even bigger preoccupation.  She explains: “I made the decision to focus on making our Riesling one of the best in Australia and every vintage since have agonised over the tiniest of details to make sure we’re achieving intensity in the mid-palate without the lovely lemon and fruit blossom flavours being displaced by acidity.” 
What separates Galafrey Riesling from the pack is that the grapes are grown without irrigation, only natural rainfall. Kim says: “I was lucky to inherit a dry-grown vineyard in a great patch – my dad dug holes all over WA in search of the right site before establishing Galafrey in 1977 – which just does all the right things for Riesling.”
Beyond Riesling Galafrey have a great Peaches and Cream Chardonnay that is short supply and a very Unique Muller Thurgau which they are one of a few who grow this variety in Australia. Enjoy!

Riesling Muller Thurgau 2019

Made form the pressing of our Reserve Riesling, this is still from our Dry Grown Vineyard and simply a 2nd tier Riesling showing lots of lemon, floral and zesty acid finish. Due to the poor condition of 2019 we were 60% down on volume for our Muller Thurgau so have blended the two wines together to make an interesting and delicious Alsace style blend.
