Awards and Accolades

- Silver Medal - 51 Points - 2014 Boutique Wine Awards
Although 2011 was a difficult vintage with a consistent rain pattern from December 2011 to harvest in March 2012. For many vineyard’s mildews were a major problem however our boutique vineyard enabled us to spend the time required to overcome such threats, resulting in an excellent vintage. The fruit for this Reserve Riesling was harvested from the same single vineyard (Our Henry Ely) as the 2011 Riesling which won the prestigious, 2012 Royal Sydney Wine Show - Douglas Lamb Trophy & Gold Medal. The 2011 Riesling success continued with a Gold medal at the 2012 Canberra International Riesling Challenge.
Colour - Quartz Green
Bouquet & Palate
This Reserve Riesling is designed for longevity, the floral aromas and lime/lemon citrus flavours whilst still restrained are starting to merge, soften and lengthen. The firm acid spine provides the foundation structure to ensure this wine will continue to improve in the bottle. Hints of floral perfume and apple blossom greet the nose and promise a flavoursome Riesling experience that will not disappoint. The natural acidity provides palate cleansing mouth freshness to entice you into another glass. The lemon lime flavours linger on the palate continuing into a long, dry & refreshing finish.
Described by James Halliday in his Australian Wine Companion - 2013 as;
"A high quality wine, less overt than the standard wine, but with a purity and precision and underlying minerality that makes it certain this will emerge as the better wine in a few years time. So drink the standard and cellar this. Rating 94 To 2021"
