Overview

Deliciously round and poised, slippery and sexy, like a mouth full of fresh vanilla pannacotta smothered in lime syrup. The natural sweetness is carried by a firm and direct line of acidity providing focus with a non-cloying, clean sorbet like finish and a lasting impression of citrus fruit flavours.

Expert Reviews

Cane-cut, desiccated riesling; pure lime juice, the considerable sweetness neatly balanced by acidity. Drink to 2014. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright golden straw with green hues.

Aroma

Vibrant and lifted with white flowers, vanilla bean, fresh lime and apple.

Palate

Deliciously round and poised, slippery and sexy, like a mouth full of frsh vanilla panna cotta smothered in lime syrup. The natural sweetness is carried by a firm and direct line of acidity providing focus with a non-cloying, clean sorbet like finish and a lasting impression of citrus fruit flavours.

Winemaking Note

The thinking behind this wine was to produce something of the essence of Riesling, concentrated, wildly varietal, but fresh and racy. It all came down to the fruit as the winemaking was simply to preserve the elements of the fruit through anaerobic, cold handling and quick processing into bottle in mid July.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
