Expert Reviews

"... The mid-palate has fantastic intensity. Every time I put it in my mouth, that wonderful burst of apple, lime and lemon-like flavour bowled me over with its intense loveliness. To smell – it’s appealing, welcoming, nothing special but good enough. When you wallow – likewise. But that ball of intense flavour would make it well worth buying in my books – for drinking this summer – if it wasn't for the turn-off factor of the price." Rating 92 - Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au (02/11/2010)

"Petalumas sensational 2010 riesling rates among the finest in the brands 30-odd-year history. Made by Andrew Hardy, the 2010 seems luxuriously rich and delicious, showing smooth texture as well as the usual shimmering, lemony varietal tang. It will almost certainly age well for decades. And from past experience its best drinking will be either now, in the early, fruity glow of youth, or many years down the track as it becomes fully mature." Top 10 Whites - Chris Shanahan, Canberra Times (10/12/2010)

"I think this could very well be the most appealing, drink now vintage Ive tried of this perennial favourite since I dont know when! Okay, the greatness of the 2002 vintage will never be forgotten, but what comes through loud and clear here is the beautiful balance and purity of flavours on offer. The pristine freshness and soft approachability of the fruit characters, citrus notes, acid structure and spring blossom/floral complexities were truly a highlight. As a drink now option its pretty hard to resist, but if you can put some away for a few years the rewards will be even greater. I like this for what it is, most purists would probably differ in opinion because it is atypical of the usual style, but then each vintage is unique in its own way." Jon Helmer - Surf Coast & Bellarine Times (07/12/2010)

"This was an even better vintage than 2009 according to many Clare producers. This is a fabulous example of this variety with its pure minerally and floral citrus characters. Has fine texture and a decisive purity of fruit." Ray Jordan, West Australian (04/11/2010)
