The 2010 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.
"Coming from estate grown vineyards planted from 1972, the 2010 Art Series Riesling gives intense notes of ripe pears, fresh peaches and granny smith apples with a spicy undercurrent and just a hint of honeysuckle. Crisp, dry and well balanced, it gives plenty of mid-palate stone fruit and apple flavors on the light to medium bodied palate leading to a long finish. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2017."
The Wine Advocate
"Light yellow. High-pitched aromas of lime, lemongrass, quinine and chalk dust, with a pear skin nuance in the background. Fleshy and smooth on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, with lively orchard fruit and citrus pith flavors showing a refreshingly bitter edge. Closes on a firm, dusty note, with lingering florality. This is delicious now..."
International Wine Cellar
"Light straw-green; an ever-reliable riesling that has legions of admirers in a national climate lukewarm about the variety; the only problems with the wine is that it sells out so quickly."
Australian Wine Companion
A very nice example of a typical Riesling, just leans a bit too sweet for my palate. Beautiful bouquet and pretty legs on the glass. Nice choice if you enjoy this varietal.
