Pale Lemon in colour. White peach notes on nose and palate along with herbal and Lime notes - a little grapefruit. Overall the impression of ripe grapes in a really good season gives one the impression of almost off dry but it is dry. Not as much tension as a few years ago - this being my last bottle. At its peak if you like mature Riesling with a swipe of cleansing acidity to finish off. Again, little or no kerosene or petrol notes which I am starting to believe is a wine fault and the subject of sunburnt grapes as Canberra Riesling producer Ken Helm once told me. 3 Trophies and many Gold Medals on the Show Circuit.

White Florals, Talc, Herbs, note of Kerosene. On the palate some white stone fruit, great structure with Medium minus acid. Finishes semi dry and soft. Excellent Clare Valley Riesling.

So well balanced, full on the palate, a little residual sugar, great value

A much awarded Riesling on the Australian Show Circuit. Starting to develop more mature characters but still Limey chalky mineral notes. Pure as the driven snow with good acidity which will propel it for another 10 years plus.

This is the 2012. Highly awarded with 3 trophies and many gold medals. Lime aromas with minerality- and perfectly weighted acidity - talc nuances. Excellent wine with or without food with enough fruit on palate yet with a 10+ year future. 17.5+.
