Express Winemakers Riesling, Ryan O’Meara, Mount Barker, Western Australia, off dry, aromatic and full Riesling with zero added sulphur. Their wild-fermented, unfined and unfiltered Riesling comes from the sandy granitic soils of one of Frankland’s oldest vineyards. A short time on skins and no settling prior to a spontaneous yet extended fermentation have conferred some crunchy phenolics and plenty of distinctive flavour. Floral and waxy notes entwine with a hint of gunpowder on the nose. The palate is bold with lively broad acid, generous length and a unique softness without becoming flabby, finishing with a lick of cleansing phenolics. The flavours are of ripe grapefruit, candied lemon rind and honeysuckle with some yeasty complexity.

Express Winemakers is built on the notion that wine should express a sense of place. It is a collaboration between good mates Ryan and Pete, who upon returning to Western Australia on the back of an endless vintage around the globe for several years, were thoroughly bored by the local wines at home that all tasted more or less the same. After tasting the flavours and textures that grapes and yeast were capable of, they thought that local vineyards with their perfect climates weren’t being done justice and took it upon themselves to create soulful and expressive wines.
Based in Western Australia’s Great Southern Wine Region they seek out naturally balanced vineyards as it makes their job a lot easier as they can just kick back and let the native yeast do their thing in true minimal intervention wine making style. They produce a number of expressive single vineyard wines as well as some wackier blends, which express a great sense of fun. Expressive wines with no expectations.
