For too long the wines of Western Australia’s Great Southern have been a bit of an insider secret. Vines have been commercially planted here since the 1960s but it is only really now that the region is getting the recognition it deserves. Our picks are its stellar Rieslings that combine great intensity of flavour with age-worthy structure.
Lifted floral notes surrounded by pink grapefruit, lemon and lime on the nose. Pure citrus flavours on the palate with good acid line and refreshing minerality for complexity and length. A fabulous Riesling.
Item Code: ITM6843
On the nose, there are vibrant aromas of orange blossom and lemon zest and floral tones. The palate is equally bright with citrus and rose petal leading to a crisp lemon finish. The balance of fruit weight and natural acidity delivers an excellent mouthfeel.
Item Code: ITM6610
"The fragrant and flowery, talc and blossom-filled bouquet leads into a leisurely uncoiling palate of lime and lemon, with quite beautiful flavour, mouthfeel and balance. From the oldest riesling vines in WA. Still developing at a leisurely pace, and better than it was when first tasted in Mar '13." Halliday Wine Companion
