Winemaker Notes

This Riesling has bright straw green in color, with concentrated aromas of freshly cut limes, jasmine and subtle sweet spice on the nose. The palate displays ripe grapefruit, citrus and musk flavors, merging into strong lime intensity on the finish. Held together by a core of crisp acidity, the finish is typically dry and clean.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Aromatically dramatic, this is fragrant with grapefruit, apple and floral character that reaches through to the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2025.

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

A stalwart of riesling for the region, this edition exhibits fresh lemon, talc and a splash of ginger; the palate is fresh and racy, with the finish softening considerably; best enjoyed young and fresh.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Art Series Riesling has a beautifully perfumed nose of frangipani, orange blossom and fresh lime juice with suggestions of yuzu zest, coriander seed and under-ripe pineapple. Dry, light-bodied, crisp and with a great intensity of citrus and tropical fruit flavor layers in the mouth, it finishes long and tangy. Approachable and tempting to drink now in this youthful, primary stage, it should cellar gracefully and keep to 2020+.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Light yellow. Vibrant scents of lime and lemon, with complicating mineral and quinine notes. Racy, tightly focused and light-bodied, with bright citrus and quince flavors. Lime zest and white pepper notes add bite to a long and incisive finish.
