Bloodwood Silk Purse

Cracka Review

Medium green gold in colour, this wine shows zesty grapefruit and fine blossom aromas entwined in a delicately smooth and racy palate which has refreshingly crisp citrus acidity balancing the distinctive silky native honey influences of this late picked, lightly botrytised Riesling. Excellent current drinking, medium term cellaring will only add to your enjoyment of this fine wine.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; a truly delicious wine; juicy lime flavours intensified by a touch of botrytis, but without warping varietal character; the balance is immaculate, the sweetness balanced by acidity.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Very long and intense, with pure riesling fruit augmented, and not subverted, by botrytis; perfect balance of sweetness and acidity.
