Premium Riesling 2010

Musky and mineral notes. Lime rather than lemon on nose and palate with grapefruit. The shrill acidity of 8 years ago now diminished but still high at 10 years of age. Quite tangy and refreshing. The Canberra District has proven to be very suitable for Riesling with producers like Helm and Clonakilla. — 2 years ago

Hi Bob. Is it still good to hold? I've got a few 09s in the cellar. Had a stunning 05 Clonakilla the other week. Loads of time left in it.

@Travis W I would say so Travis. Certainly plenty of acid left. Just tasted a 2002 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling which blew us away. Notes to follow.

We went to this winery instead of the start of Yass races hehe


Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Syrah 2012

Crafted in the Northern Rhone peppery spicy style- a style which I like. This wine had nice peppery, dried meat notes but lacked mid palate fruit oomph. Medium to light bodied - a Syrah for Pinot drinkers. In the same genre I preferred the recently tasted Clonakilla Shiraz Viognier. — 6 years ago

Lark Hill

Biodynamic Wine Shiraz Viognier

Typical Shiraz/Viognier Blend of the Canberra District without the oomph of the benchmark Clonakilla. Strong white pepper and brambley notes. Pepper and Spice on the medium weight palate. Good drinking and may be peak drinking at 5 years of age. Like this style a lot. — 4 years ago

Heiligenstein Riesling 2009

Initial impression is a gorgeous honeyed nose - not a hint of Kero. A mouth filling delicious palate with mineral slightly saline, moderate acid finishing with a refreshing Grapefruit bitterness. Lost a little intensity with air but overall it literally won by a nose ( the gorgeous honeyed nose!) over the 2009 Clonakilla. — 5 years ago
