expert reviews about
Ashton Hills Tardy Riesling
Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Adelaide Hills meets the Mosel and Alsace in an enticingly, mouth-wateringly zesty style that epitomises the secret of the great sweet rieslings of the world: high-tensile acidity leading sweetness. It’s fragrant, focused and pure, with aromas of golden delicious apple, lemon zest, ripe peach and cane sugar. The palate harmonises succulent sweetness with the natural acidity and inherent minerality of this high altitude vineyard, embellished in this particularly cold vintage. An impeccably crafted off-dry riesling that ranks among the finest of its style in the country.
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Reduction provides a closed bouquet, with struck match and green apple on display; the palate is off dry and full of mineral interest, with plenty of texture; lovely purity and precision, and excellent length. Manfred Prum would approve.Australian Wine Companion 2013 2012
