The 2018 vintage was arguably one of the best in years. With no extreme weather events, no disease pressure and consistently fine conditions throughout, it was a vintage most winemakers would love to ‘dial up’ every year! This Riesling is harvested at night from our preferred Block 6 at Langton and so only has to travel a few metres to the crushing deck. The fruit arrived at the winery at less than 12 C; only the free run juice was used and it was fermented at 12 - 15 C, ensuring all the inherent delicacy in this variety was retained.

Winery Tasting Notes


A bright, light straw with a light green tinge.


Attractive lemon sherbet characters with a fresh, pithy lemon/lime aroma.


A fine dry wine with beautifully pure and delicate lemon fruit flavours. This wine has attractive, sherbet like characters and a zingy, fresh acidity. It has good length of flavour and a crisp, clean finish.

Food Match

This Riesling is approachable now and would be great as an aperitif or matched with any very fresh seafood.


Stunning now as an aperitif or cellar for many years eg 5 – 10, for some bottle age complexity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, West Cape Howe is the most southerly point, rising some 250 metres above the Southern Ocean. It is thought that the first explorers to this coastline were Dutch seafarers in 1627 aboard their 'Fluyt' class vessel "Gulden Zeepaard" (Golden Seahorse).

The winery is named after this magnificent landmark to pay respect not only to the natural beauty of the region, but also in recognition of the extreme influence of the Southern Ocean on the area's viticulture. The rugged coastline is home to some stunning white beaches, sheltered coves and great rock climbing sites.

West Cape Howe Wines is owned by a partnership including Gavin Berry (until 2004, senior winemaker at Plantaganet), and viticulturist, Rob Quenby. It was founded in 1997 and soon became one of the fastest growing wine brands in Western Australia, now producing around 60,000 cases annually. Over time, it has acquired some of the oldest vineyard resources in the state, giving it unrivalled access to the best and most consistent quality fruit that the cool Great Southern wine region has to offer.

West Cape Howe's driving philosophy is to make delicious wines of harmony, balance, structure and flavour - wines that people love to drink.
