Cracka Review

Frogmore creek are doing epic things with riesling, so now is the time to  discover their wines before the whole world finds out about them! It's highly fragrant on the nose, with intoxicating floral and citrus smells, then the light-bodied, dry palate kicks in with juicy citrus flavours, a touch of herbs, and a super-crunchy, long finish. It will benefit from some cellar time, but give it a good chill and it will be good to go with some tempura prawns.

Winemaker's Notes

Vineyards: Frogmore Creek Riesling is sourced from vines grown in their family owned Vineyard at Penna, Southern Tasmanian.

Tasting notes: Subtle lime and floral aromas with lively citrus and mineral flavours. Juicy cool climate acid fills the mouth and lingers.

Food matching suggestions: Goes well with tuna sashimi or seared Tasmanian scallops with cognac.

2015 Frogmore Creek Riesling

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Bright, light green-gold; the aromatic bouquet has a sunburst of lime, lemon and grapefruit, the palate treading in its steps, but with some acid restraint that will serve it well over the decade.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Mineral, apple and herb aromas; very lively and crisp palate; a touch of CO2 works well. Trophies (including Best Wine of Show, Tas Wine Show '09). Unrecognisable from the wine tasted a year earlier
