Trophies: 2020 Tasmanian Wine Show – Best Sweet Wine, Reserve Champion Wine of Show.

The medium-sweet 2017 Riesling R69 – a versatile wine to have with Asian style or spicy foods, hard cheeses or  dessert. As I often say in the tasting room – “it’s the wine to have while relaxing in the hammock on the verandah.” Clean, crisp and with the quality of its predecessors – a lovely wine for those who enjoy medium-sweet white wine.  (Michelle Melick)

Here are the expert opinions:

“With a light yellow-green hue, this lovely wine has spice, honey, vanilla nuances adding to its lemon-citrus bouquet. Juicy fruit and subtle sweetness are superbly balanced. It’s delicious now but will blossom given more time. It won two trophies including reserve champion wine of show, 2020 Tasmanian Wine Show.”   96/100 -Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 16 Jan 2020

“The pristine, fresh acidity is a given, and rather than merely sweetness from the 69g/l residual sugar, it has morphed this wine altogether, adding layers of flavour. Preserved ginger and oranges, lemon balm infused tea and cardamom rally together on the long finish. Beautiful balance.” 95 points – Gold – Jane Faulkner, Australian Wine Companion, 01 August 2018
