Winemaker Notes

Bright, pale gold with vibrant lime hues. Lifted aromas of citrus blossom, kaffir limeleaf, bath salts and lime zest, with hints of stone-fruit, lemongrass and green peppercorns. Intense and focused, the palate shows concentrated flavors of zesty lime,ripe citrus and green peppercorn,supported by a pure, clean line of refined acidity and minerality, for a long, tight finish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
There's a really harmonious feel to this wine. As young as it is, it really delivers a smoothly fragrant nose with a convincingly polished, ripe lemon and nectarine palate. Screw cap.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Julius Riesling leaps from the glass with beautiful lime blossom, lemon curd and white grapefruit notes with suggestions of jasmine, lanolin and hay. Light-bodied, pure, clean, refreshing and very dry, it has an almost electric intensity and very long, mineral-laced finish.
Rating: 92+
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This is completely closed at first, so that all it offers is a soft, clean texture. Some initial notes of grapefruit evolve with a day of air into complex layers of juicy, fragrant and substantial citrus flavors, the structure tight and austerely dry. The cool, foresty tones in the finish show the wine’s staying power. Check on this eight years from the vintage; it should thrive for decades.

Henschke, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of winery
The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s. Fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue are one of the most lauded winemaking teams in the world, and international awards recognize the complementary nature of their roles, Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. To protect their vineyards for future generations they have implemented an inspiring nursery program to preserve the genetic heritage of their oldest pre-phylloxera vines as well as continuing to lead the way with organic and biodynamic principals to enrich their land.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry-farmed and bush-trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Riesling

View all wine

A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining easily identifiable typicity. This versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Riesling is best known in Germany and Alsace, and is also of great importance in Austria. The variety has also been particularly successful in Australia’s Clare and Eden Valleys, New Zealand, Washington, cooler regions of California, and the Finger Lakes region of New York.

In the Glass

Riesling typically produces wine with relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality and stone fruit, spice, citrus and floral notes. At its ripest, it leans towards juicy peach, nectarine and pineapple, while cooler climes produce Rieslings redolent of meyer lemon, lime and green apple. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of petrol.

Perfect Pairings

Riesling is quite versatile, enjoying the company of sweet-fleshed fish like sole, most Asian food, especially Thai and Vietnamese (bottlings with some residual sugar and low alcohol are the perfect companions for dishes with substantial spice) and freshly shucked oysters. Sweeter styles work well with fruit-based desserts.

Sommelier Secret

It can be difficult to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling, and German labeling laws do not make things any easier. Look for the world “trocken” to indicate a dry wine, or “halbtrocken” or “feinherb” for off-dry. Some producers will include a helpful sweetness scale on the back label—happily, a growing trend.
