Overview

Sourced entirely from vineyards in the Pipers Brook regions of north-eastern Tasmania, the inspiration for this wine is the steely, complex Rieslings from the French region of Alsace, Pipers Brook's style of Riesling bridges the gap between the more traditional Australian Riesling, with its toasty, oily characters, and that of the European Rieslings with their soft floral perfume scent, refined mineral quartz rich textured palate and the retention of clean bright acid on the finish providing balance and structure for aging. The cool viticulture climate of Tasmania provides the ideal balance of fruit retention, acid depth, and mineral edge that helps Pipers Brook achieve this chosen style.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale lemon & lime, indicative of its cool climate origins.

Aroma

Finely scented perfume talc nose, characterized by guava, vanilla bean and citrus peel fruit aromas, all with the subtle tones of lemongrass, pineapple and apple blossom which is nicely interwoven with natural cool climate acidity giving distinctive flinty mineral notes.

Palate

Mineral rich flavours. The palate is elegant and refined with very subtle guava, nicely integrated candy lemon peel, tangy lime juice, and flavours of pineapple and pears. The overall balance of the wine is tight crisp and dry, with a distinct quartz mineral edge. The light skin tannin from some maceration offering structure and the tight expressive acid tones lifting and providing complexity on the finish.

Cellaring Potential

A likely life span through to 2017 or beyond, with the best years being 2015-2019.

Food Matching

In its youth the wine is superb with lightly spiced vegetable dishes, braised Belgium endive au Gratin, asparagus with Parmesan shavings and balsamic vinaigrette. Thai pork stir-fry, however with some bottle age it matches beautifully with salt and pepper squid, oysters with limejuice, canapé-sized whitebait fritters, Thai or Asian cuisine, and lemon chicken salad.
