Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010, Nick Stock (Australia, New Zealand), 01 Dec 09 Vintage: 2009 95 - 97 Points "Full of energy and verve, this has a very precise, pure and intense nose of finely fragrant green fruits, limes and melons, some slate sheeted down below. The palate is about as precise as riesling can be in Australia; it pins itself down with razor-like acidity and pure lime on slate flavour. Impeccably crafted, long and fine."
Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant pale green.
Spotlessly clean, delicate citrus notes of lemon/lime/grapefruit and a touch of our slatey mineral character.
Delicate and subtle with vibrant lemon/lime flavours and slate/mineral acidity kicking in at the end to provide length and backbone to the wine.
A pure expression of Riesling from the slatey soils of our Polish Hill River Estate vineyard. Potential to cellar for 10-15 yrs.
