Winemaker's Notes

In its inaugural release, the 2006 Magnus Riesling displays all the hallmarks of fine Clare Valley Riesling; juicy acidity, lemony citrus and fullness of flavor. The palate shows fresh punchy citrus fruit balanced out by delicious, tangy acidity, and finishes long and refreshing.

Critical Acclaim

"#44 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

Impressive for its harmony and seamless structure, offereing a joyous mouthful of lemon curd, quince and lime."

This is a moderately sweet Riesling with a good finish. Pair it with fruit, cheese, fish or chicken. I have bought this now for three years and will continue to use it as my main white wine.

Juicy fruit is an excellent description. Lemon and citrus, but really round mouthfeel, balanced by crisp acidity. Hint of petrol in the nose, but the palate really is like a lemon dessert, but a crisp one. Great with lemon chicken or a pasta dish with a citrus based sauce.
