Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
“A softly assertive wine with tension between delicate lemon-lime fruit and tangy, salt-flecked, mineral persistence. It would benefit from some cellar time to serve with grilled barramundi.” 93 points, Wine & Spirits Magazine
Ratings
"Intense, featuring a jasmine oil note followed by pure yellow apple, star fruit and chamomile flavors. The finish is seriously long, with rapier cut and a lingering talc hint. Drink now through 2022..." 91 points, Wine Spectator; James Molesworth
Awards
“Another excellent dry riesling from Ravine's estate vineyard that's attained even more concentrated and supple levels than the excellent 2014, which it at least matches. Better in 2018 and capable of long ageing.” 92 points, James Suckling
Vineyard Notes
Cold winter and a fairly wet spring changing over in mid-June to warm and sunny conditions. Harvest brix 21.2 - 22.2.
Production Notes
Hand harvested grapes from White Springs vineyard were whole cluster pressed with a portion given skin contact prior to pressing. All components were fermented at low temperature (54F - 60F) in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After racking, components were aged on the lighter lees over winter until April.
Winemaker Notes
“For all of its mouth pucker and tartness, it also beautifully expresses its fruit, showing some stones and steel under the acidity... Focused, elegant and precise, this should age pretty well, too.” 90 points, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
