    Geoff Cowey, Lousia Rose, Peter Simic., Winestate, December 2010

    Riesling
    Crisp, dry and flavoursome, with lovely fresh, succulent, mineral/lime characters. Will age very well. Cellar 5+ years.

    Courier Mail, January 2011


    Lime and floral characters dominate the nose and palate of this ever-reliable South Australian riesling, with a nice mineral backbone and crisp finish. It's great drinking by itself but also teams well with seafood or chicken dishes and has the pedigree to develop well in the bottle over a few years.

    Western Australian, February 2011


    A bracing, refreshing acidity highlights this nice little riesling from Clare Valley. Has a crisp minerally influence on the palate. A fine lingering acid and a touch of lemon juice brightens the palate. Excellent in the short term or with another five years in the cellar.

    Crisp and refreshing on the palate with flavours of fresh lime and lemon. If you have not tried a riesling for a while give this a go. Right price and good quality.

    Silky in texture, with a juicy feel to the pear, apple and floral flavours, dancing deftly through the dry finish. Drink now through 2018.

    2010 Riesling, Clare Valley: Lean, slate/ grapefruit aromas with hints of TDN and lime sezt. The mouth feel is more delicate than many. Ideal to pair with mildly spiced Asian foods.

  • New releases from Australia
    Wakefield Estate Riesling 201090 points

    Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanser's International Wine Cellar, July 2011

    New releases from Australia
    Bright straw. Mineral-accented aromas of lime, lemongrass, mint and white flowers, with a hint of smokiness. Very dry and precise, with good tangy bite to its citrus and orchard fruit flavours. Nervey, clean and pure on the finish, with a chalky quality and lingering spiciness. I like this wine's balance and verve.

    Fresh, ripe lemon sherbet bouquet. Firm steely backbone of grapefruit acidity fleshed out with ripe citrus fruit flavour. Needs time.

    Glen Frederiksen, Winelines Online (USA), October 2011


    Distinctly varietal, this wineÆs aromatics include pine needle, rose petal, citrus blossom and ripe apple fruit. In the mouth, thereÆs lots of lime and minerality. It finishes with a juicy, sweet-tart edge. This would pair well with ceviche in lime juice.

    Australian Wine Annual, November 2011


    Musky, floral and intensely flavoured, this generous and brightly flavoured riesling has a punchy, almost pungent bouquet of lime juice and lemon lifted by scents of white flowers, musk and backed by a mineral hint of bathpowder. It's juicy, crunchy palate fills the mouth with intence if not complex flavours, finishing marginally sweet, with a lemon sherbet note.

    Light and crisp, with a perfumed bouquet of baby powder and lime blossom. Simple green apple and lime flavors carry a tart edge through the finish.

    Greymouth Evening Star, January 2012


    Very dry and quite different to Kiwi Rieslings has been the tradition in Australia. Aromas of orange and lime flavours of lemon and limes and a minerality that is reminiscent of sucking a dry stone.

    Richard Allisette, The Guernsey Press & Star, October 2014


    A chance to see if you like the flavours of Clare Valley Riesling without having to spend a fortune. A few years of bottle age have allowed the wine to develop complex secondary flavours. Try this with a mildly spicy dish such as Thai green curry or even some grilled prawns or langoustines.
