Star Riesling from the great Frankland Estate, studded with high points - including 96 from Halliday
5 Red Star Frankland Estate is tucked away in the wilderness of WA's remote Great Southern region. It turns out very fine wines – their Rieslings in particular are absolutely spectacular. Halliday gives this one a stellar 96pts!
Zippy, zesty and delicious. Sourced from vineyards around Orange, where alititudes of close to 1000m above sea level lead to cool-climate Riesling exhibiting vibrant minerality, plenty of citrus-like acidity and an abundance of flavour
Seppelt are the proud winners of Halliday's 'Best Riesling of the Year 2021' for the 2019 vintage. This 2012 Museum Release, is like a time capsule to what the current vintage will taste like in another several years. Ideal for those who cannot wait that long... and considering the excellent price, why not?!
"Seppelt came close to abandoning this vineyard in Henty 30 or so years ago... a problem no more. The perfumed fragrance is wonderful, at once light and intense. Citrus and apple blossom notes are quite special, and illuminate the very long palate and aftertaste.... 98pts" (Halliday).
Resplendent Riesling from Halliday's 'Winery of the Year 2020'
‘Florita’ is Spanish for ‘little flower’. This is an elegant and balanced wine with intense floral aromas and classic citrus overtones. A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next 30 years.
"The bouquet offers floral notes first up, moving quick smart to lime and lemon blossom, and a surge of minerality drawing saliva from the mouth while extending the length of what is a very good riesling... 94pts" (Halliday).
An aromatic, harmonious Tasmanian Riesling. Delicious!
Although Alex Russell produces many lesser known varietals (especially Italian or Spanish) in origin, the cool-climate winemaking is the real speciality, hence this beautifully balanced Riesling from the Tamar Valley.
Rollicking Clare Riesling from the top Watervale sub-region ... grab this!
Riesling thrives in the Clare, particularly in Watervale, a sub-region a little south, and a bit cooler, giving crisp, tangy and delicate lemon lime notes. Taste a glorious example from the bestselling Comeback Kid ... it's superb.
