This offering is rounded and juicy, with fine concentration, a citrus-led palate, and a scattering of dried herbs offset by honeysuckle.

Very pale. Cool, fresh and herbal. Vital and cooling. Not a bad price...Confident stuff.

Winemaker John Durham makes a lovely Riesling, and this is a fine, soft, delicate style with a touch of sweetness which leavens the potential austerity of young, cool-climate Riesling. It's intense, fruity and fine, and has a great future.

Loaded with lime and lemon, with a light dusty phenolic touch giving some grip...Classic.

Pronounced floral and honey aromas with nuances of frangipani, acacia honey and lime cordial...The acid is very crisp and there's plenty of concentrated citrus fruit on the light bodied palate with a long steely finish.

A flowery, almost spicy, bouquet, then a finely chiselled and precise palate, lime and mineral flavours intertwined; long-term future assured.

Lovely definition, bracing acid and that charming flint and steel quality. Classic Riesling.

A fine dry Western Aussie Riesling whose fresh, citrus/smoky nose, and delicately textured, refreshingly juicy apple fruit quality is etched with lemon-sherbet freshness and a satisfyingly juicy, dry finish. A wine that says 'lap me up please!'.

Mineral and petrol and lime juice on the nose, spices and oranges on the palate. Refreshing, balanced, dry.

Classic, racy, lime, honeysuckle and apple character.

Who says only Clare and Eden Valleys make excellent Riesling? This one from the Great Southern region way down south in Western Australia is floral, fragrant and fresh and appetizingly full of the lime zesty joys of the variety, and finishes with that nice dry snap that makes it such a shellfish-friendly option.

This is just beautiful. A classic Great Southern Riesling.
