"This is a wolf in sheep's clothing, picked at far lower baume' than usual for riesling, but leaving the palate with a bewitching combination of elegance, finesse and pure lemon/lime varietal fruit; the crisp, dry finish has perfectly balanced acidity. Drink to 2028."
- Silver Medal - 2014 Boutique Wine Awards
The 2012-13 vintage season provided ample rainfall though winter which filled underground aquifers & gave our deep rooted dry grown vines good access to moisture during the important spring & summer growth season. Such was the growth we had to spend considerable time in summer pruning back vines to open the canopy and provide good air circulation. The mild summer provided excellent slow ripening conditions and the resulting Reserve wine is one of our best to date.
Colour - Quartz Green
Bouquet & Palate
Our Reserve Rieslings are designed for longevity & this 2013 vintage will be no exception. It has a very clean & dry linear palate that delivers a lovely lime blast. It is anchored by a firm acid spine delivering the important mouth freshening flavours vital to improved food enjoyment. With floral aromas and predominant lime & lemon citrus flavours this is a superb food wine that can be drunk with pleasure now or cellared carefully for a decade or more to bring out the magnificiently complex characters of premium aged Riesling.
This wine will match well with all fish and crustaceans, spicy Asian cuisine, pork and chicken dishes.
