expert reviews about
2014 Leo Buring Leopold Tasmanian Riesling
The Wine Front (2014 Vintage) says
Sourced from the White Hills vineyard in Tasmania. Leo himself was dux of Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1896, and I wonder what he would think about his eponymous brand going into the north of Tassie for fruit sources. Probably chuffed.There’s some banana, oatmeal-like yeasty notes in the perfume but they’re snapped away by floral scents, green apple and a squeeze of grapefruit. Some ginger and spice in the palate, feathery sugariness, crisp, crunchy acidity. Mouthwatering finish lends some higher drinkability. A lacy-feel to this wine, really delicious, great drinking, and some fine structure in tow. Yes, yes.
Wine Companion (2014 Vintage) says
DW R20. Now and in the future from the estate White Hills Vineyard 20km southeast of Launceston. The flowery, citrus blossom bouquet leads into lazy intensity as totally delicious lime juice flavours roll along the mouth through to the finish and aftertaste.
