2019 Dry Riesling $35

2019 Dry Riesling $35


A near perfect growing season produced excellent fruit across all varieties. A cold dry winter followed by a relatively dry summer saw crop levels lower than normal, but the quality of the fruit was high. White and red varieties all performed well, with perfect ripening conditions during harvesting.  While crops were down it was still another great vintage with the quality being similar to 2014-2018 vintages.

Another vintage that has big shoes to fill on the back of the numerous gold medals and trophies that both the 2016, 2017 & 2018 vintages received. However, Jacob thinks that we have succeeded in delivery the same high quality standard. The 2019 has many of the same characteristics as previous vintages, and shows that Riesling can still do well in the warm dry years. A classical dry Riesling, with all the lime and fruit characters you would expect, and a crisp and racy finish with a slight touch of sweetness. This wine has the ability to age beautifully.

96 Points  “It’s measured and precise and demands attention. Sleek feels and pristine fruit highlight what is a brilliant wine. Dive in to find lemons and limes, Jasmine flowers and slivers of green apple. Pretty bath salts and ever so subtle musk aromas rise up late. It’s juicy with a minerally river stone vibe – a package that oozes class. A lemon sherbet tang the parting gift to keep you coming back for more. I dare you to stare this down and fail it…” Qwine, Dec 2019

96 Points “Pale straw with a healthy green tinge. Lovely floral aromatics of citrus blossoms, essence of lime, mandarin skin and a tease of wild honey. The palate bursts with pure lime juice – pristine and focused. It’s just delicious. Perfectly ripe and balanced. A subtle spritz adds drive to the finish, balanced with its natural acidity. Drinking beautifully now, and will reward a decade in the cellar.” The Real Review, Nick Butler, Dec 2019

95 Points  “You can see why this 2019 has 2 trophies, 8 gold medals as a starting point – it’s excellent. There’s a humming intensity here, a real Australian interpretation of great Riesling, the pithy lemon lime citrus a wave of intensity that is undeniable. It’s very dry, very refreshing, and long. That fruit is ripe, yet there is a mass of rumbling acidity, without harshness. Long. Acid-etched. Powerful. It feels more like Eden Valley shaped than anything out of NSW, let alone Mudgee. the lines more deeply etched than nearly anything. Commanding. Precise. Exceptional.” Oz Wine Review, Jan 2019

95 Points  “As ever, a wonderfully fragrant example, all lemons and limes – hints of bath salt. Floral aspects in the aroma too, Jasmine primarily, just a hint of lavender. Taught line of acidity, snap and crackle across the palate, zing and zest. That burst of energy gently ebbing, lasting long and delivering what is quite simply an excellent finish.” The Vinsomniac, Dec 2019

19/20 “Pristine crystaline, lime leaf, lime skin, lime juice and delicate blossom aromas. length, focus, tension. The acid is high: treble pushed high yet wonderfully disguised through a layered texture. Intensity plus. Able to stand tall and put Mudgee on the map for Riesling.”  Vinonotebook, Nov 2019

“Superb, steely aromas of limes + a hint of florals, delightful crisp steely citrus flavours with perfectly balanced acidity (it has the dryness scale on the back label) plus – 2 Trophies & 8 Gold Medals- what a wine!! OMG IT IS DIVINE!!!” Wine Assist, Dan Traucki, Dec 2019

4.5 Stars “Clean, lean and long with zesty citrus varietal aromas showing a spicy lift. The vibrant palate has attractive citrus fruit flavours and nice crunchy texture.” Winestate Magazine Nov 2019

“…a classic dry riesling, with aromas of lime juice and florals, and a crisp and fresh finish.’ Mindfood Magazine Perfect Picks, Dec 2019

“It’s easy to see the quality that has gained this white wine two trophies and seven gold medals. Loads of floral and citrus purity highlight the wine…” PS News, John Rozentals, Dec 2019

“…It is arguably one of the more appealing, enjoyable Rieslings that I have recently enjoyed. It offers immediate pleasure and palate satisfaction with definite promises of longevity. All the typical varietal characters abound..the crisply clean acid spine supports and lifts the wafts of citrus, lime blossom and rose petals.” The Grape Hunter, Gilbert Labour, Dec 2019
