- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
- PRODUCED BY WINNER OF WINEMAKER OF YEAR JAMES HALLIDAY
- FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED WINERY ESTABLISHED IN 1850
A crisp and refreshing wine with delicate floral and citrus aromas, honeysuckle and lime leaf. The palate is generous in flavour with zesty lemon, lime and crunchy pink lady apple flavours, tangy acid with a clean persistent finish.
96 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Winemaker Paul Hotker has a way with riesling, far from the centre of the Bleasdale portfolio. There's a tactile feel to the wine that moves from lime juice painted on the surfaces of the mouth, to mouthwatering acidity. Low yields in this vintage is only part of the story."
90 Point Rated - Huon Hooke
"Palish colour, fresh aromas, vibrant, bright, briskly lemony, the palate high in acid and very frisky. Tangy, dry and energetic. The acidity is a bit challenging solo and it demands food. Fish would be first choice."
Mike Bennie The Wine Front
"Light on riesling, a little colour by numbers and feeling a bit elementary in its personality. Looks almost completely clear in the glass, flavours are reluctant green apple juice and lime juice, the texture a nice chalky frill to juicy, lime things, the finish a touch short but pleasing."
Adelaide Hills Riesling is handpicked directly into a refrigerated container where it is cooled all day and during transport. Delivered to the historic Bleasdale cellars at dusk for pressing in the cool of the evening. Cool fermentation in tank with moderate level of solids to build some texture and interest, bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.
