2012 Riesling Bannockburn

Quite taut and mineral on the nose with citrus blossom and peaches lurking underneath. The palate is explosive: incredibly luxuriant, plush, yet kept in check with citrus peel and a seam of minerals that grow to dominate what is more of a grand finale than a finish. The residual sugar is barely noticeable as the crisp acidity frames and balances the wine.

Scented of fresh lemonade and lime juice with suggestions of grapefruit and chalk dust, the medium sweet, light-bodied 2012 Riesling is made to a lower alcohol style (8.5% declared) and offers plenty of zip on the palate through to a very long and lively finish. Drink it now to 2019+. 90 points.

Gourmet Traveller, Bob Campbell, Feb/Mar 2013

Moderately sweet Mosel-style Riesling with citrus, mineral, stone fruit and a suggestion of wild flowers.  A core of taut acidity reacts with sweetness to give an exquisite tension. Wonderful purity and an impressive lingering finish. 96*****.
