From the winery:
The elusive black dog of Black Dog Creek in north eastern Victoria has been immortalised by Buller Wines on the label of their new range of King Valley table wines.
Local legend has it that Black Dog Creek, located just south of the Buller family home in Rutherglen, was named in the early days of settlement by drovers who sighted a rare black native dog at their campsite by the creek. The name Black Dog Creek is synonymous with the mystery and intrigue of Victoria's gold rush heyday in the 1850s, and was also an area frequented by the infamous Kelly Gang.
The 2005 Black Dog Creek King Valley Riesling is destined for popularity during the warmer months with its crisp flavours of freshly cut apple, zesty lemon and lime citrus. The finish has a pleasant minerally character and the palate weight is delicate but persistent. Delicious served chilled with summer salads and seafood dishes.
