This is an acid driven wine with almost no residual sugar – it is narrow on the palate and if people like dry white wine – this is a super-dry white wine! However the lack of sugar does not mean a lack of floral and citrus fruits on the nose and palate. The R0 is a perfect complement to seafood and shellfish.
Some Past Vintages
The 2015 Riesling R0 – “It has flavour, texture and searing acidity. It’s hard to imagine that this will do anything other than mature very well. Exquisite balance. Lime, slate and mineral. Everything in fine order. 95 points.” (James Halliday, 2017 AWC)
The 2012 Riesling R0 – has intense lime/citrus florals combined with a balanced, elegant
palate. A great acid line and backbone ensures that this wine will continue to improve for many years.

2011 Riesling R0 – Tightly wound and restrained, notes of lemon zest, nectarine and fennel. Very dry with bracing acidity which is just starting to resolve.
