2010 RED ROBIN RESERVE RIESLING - ($27 Per Bottle Price - Minimum 6 Bottle Order $160)
Awards and Accolades
★★★★★ (5 Bottles) - Aged Release Rating 95 - Outstanding - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion 2018. - "Bright straw-green, looking more like a 2yo than a 7yo wine, and the palate every bit as fresh as the colour suggests. Crisp citrus and Granny Smith apple drive the long palate, owing nothing to residual sugar, everything to the conjunction of a pH of 2.91, and a titratable acidity of 7.18g/L. Another 10 years won't tire of it."

A mild growing & ripening season with small but regular showers saw harvest commence in late February, some 2 weeks earlier than average. We harvested only 13 tonnes to maintain acceptable stock levels, approximately 1200 litres of the reserve was bottled in October 2010.
Colour - Golden straw with Light Green Tones
Bouquet & Palate
This wine commenced with a restrained floral perfumed nose of lemon blossom aromas. It has now started to emerge from its initial straight jacketed steely tightness, opening up with glorious ripe pear and lemon flavours with hints of ripe rock melon that linger on the palate with a long, dry & refreshing finish.
With its softening acidity and ripening flavours this wine is a perfect accompaniment to spicy Asian cuisine, soups, casseroles, pork and chicken meals.
