David Boon, Boags, Tasmanian Tigers and... Riesling?

That's the possible progression of great Tasmanian things if this wine is anything to go by. It's a juicy style of Riesling yes, also a dry one, straddling the ripeness fence to give something for the whole family (that should also get even better with a little more bottle age).

expert reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
A vivid example of what a year's development can do for Tasmanian riesling; now totally gorgeous, with layers of ripe Bickford's lime juice framed by Tasmanian acidity, giving the wine tremendous length.

Light straw-green; has beeswax and honey on the bouquet, then a long, lingering sweet-fruited palate; won’t let go; good aftertaste.

There s a decidedly flinty edge here. This has a fully ripe set of fruits that merge into exotic stone fruit and tropical territory, mango and musk, apple blossom too _ complex stuff. The palate s full and fleshy with plenty of weight, hints of spice, fresh apple and citrus fruits, peach too. Really long and settled already.

Bright straw-green; has considerable depth and length to its ripe lime juice flavours; good balance and a great future.

A decidedly Rheingau-like nose, with spiced apple and apple blossom aroma, really spicy; some green melon too. The palate has long ripe green melon and citrus flavour - this has a convincing style about it, finishing on a precisely polished mineral line. Acid has the last word.

Clean, crisp, minerally; good line, length and balance to a wine with delicacy and finesse.

Has literally blossomed over the last 12 months. Fine, delicate and pure apple and citrus blossom aromas, then a long, fine and very intense palate.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; crisp, dry and minerally aromas have a faint tinge of lime blossom in the background, and those delicate blossom and passionfruit characters come through on the attractive, albeit light, palate.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is solid, not particularly aromatic, but with limey fruit quite evident. The palate has plenty of flavour, but the support of residual sugar is just a little on the heavy side.

winemaker's notes

Made from vines over 40 years old, this wine has a rich nose, showing lime pith, lemon fruits and a touch of talc perfume. The palate reveals vibrant lemon juice, lime pith balanced against taut and lively Tasmanian acidity, resulting in a wine with excellent length and a crisp, refreshing finish. It is perfectly suited to fresh Tasmanian seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.
