    Best's Great Western Riesling 2019

    Whole-bunch pressed to stainless steel for cold fermentation, stopped with 7g/l residual sugar. Gold medal Melbourne Wine Awards '19, top-gold Victorian Wine Show '19. It has the intense lime zest and pith flavours I find irresistible. Bright acidity glides alongside the fruit.

    Rating: 95 - Special Value

    Best's Great Western Riesling 2019

    “The riesling vines used to produce this wine come from cuttings off the original 1866 planting of Best’s. Cool, huh? Always a zingy number and distinctly Aussie riesling in that zingy, tart, acid driven way, here’s another cracker.

    Lime juice and zest, steely mineral notes, fragrant and frisky to taste, all mouth-watering and refreshing and generally just delicious. Quite a bit of concentration here but the freshness is ludicrous and challenges any perceived weight here. A touch of sweetness? Maybe. A delight.”

    “Pale yellow hue, the aroma very fragrant and lifted. Very attractive dried flower aromas, the palate briskly acidic and dry and almost a tad austere - if it wasn't for the rich fruit centre. It promises to age superbly.”
