A pleasing Australian Riesling. Light straw coloured. Pineapples, citrus fruits, and oak flavours. Slightly sweet. Tasted January 2012.

Dry, intense citrus taste. A little bit too much on the acidity. Served chilled will help.

Full throttle Riesling here folks! An interesting mix of grassy, herbal and subtle plastic/naugahyde aromatics – that’s not a bad thing. To taste this South Australian reveals rip-roaring acidity but a solid mineral core as well and just a hint of sweetness to balance the overall package. Expect lemon - and lots of it; lime and grapefruit too. It’s really quite good. The wine will easily cut through the weight of many cream-based dishes. Tasted April 2012

Petrol, green apple, and dustiness on the nose. It has a racy acidity and plenty of fruit. Much dryer than it first appears to be and it has a surprising amount of body. Serve well chilled.

Golden yellow with a pale green hue. This racy, vibrant, dry riesling shows good acidity. Petrol and citrus fruit invade the schnoz and lemon drops and apricot tingle the taste buds. Not a great sipper, and as the experts point out, this would be fine company for oysters or seafood drizzled with lemon juice. I enjoyed it as a partner for spicy Thai chicken. Grip it n' sip it! April 2013.
