Frogmore Creek FGR Riesling

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

This is basically a semi-sweet wine, but the acidity is so zesty it comes across more off-dry. Lime is the main theme with this wine on both the nose and palate, along with a touch of spice and jasmine florals. The palate is light-bodied and slightly sweet, with great balance of acidity off-setting the sweetness that leads to a taut, crisp finish. It's a cracking riesling that would be awesome with Asian-inspired food. 

Winemaker's Notes

The highly acclaimed Frogmore Creek wines are from the genuine cool-climate of southern Tasmania, where our sustainably grown grapes benefit from a long growing season. 

The 2011 Frogmore Creek FGR Riesling displays fragrant lemon blossom and tingling flavours of citrus sorbet and golden kiwifruit. Cool climate minerality adds structure and freshens the long palate.

Frogmore Creek FGR Riesling

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
Tightly focused and finely balanced, this youthful riesling has a delicate primary bouquet of apple, pear and white flowers. It's sweet and juicy, with an elemental, tinned fruit-like expression of apple and pear flavour underpinned by a fine chalkiness, finishing with length, acidity and persistence. It needs time.

Green-gold; the wine has tremendous intensity, drive and length; the balance is immaculate; Bickford's lime juice flavours abound. Gold medal Tas Wine Show '12.

FGR has ascended to the lofty position of one of Tassie's most important medium sweet rieslings. 2011 will land in October and you're the first to hear about it because this is an outstanding season for this wine, deriving energy and vitality from the cool conditions. A gorgeous bouquet captures the edgy mood of the season in its kaffir lime zest, lime drop, white pepper and lifted lime blossom aromas. The palate is immaculately balanced, carrying all the same flavours long, crisp and clean, perfectly tempered with succulent sweetness, yet finishing crisp, taut and softly textural.

Fragrant citrus blossom bouquet; lovely line and length, pure and clean; effortless flavour; lovely wine. Gold medal Tas Wine Show '11.
Australian Wine Companion 2012
Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
An intense, faintly mineral bouquet of lime juice and apple backed by hints of spicy pear, cloves and nutmeal precedes a vibrant, juicy palate whose long presence of pear, apple and lemony fruit overlies a fine chalky backbone. It finishes very fresh and tangy, with lingering suggestions of bathpowder and lemon sherbet.

Strong lime and orange blossom aromas; the wine that set the path for this Mosel style, with its complex sweetness balanced by Tasmanian acidity; very rich and satisfying. FGR means 40 grammes per litre of residual sugar.

Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says
One of Tasmania’s first medium-dry Rieslings remains its finest. It’s more about minerality and texture than lemon, lime and red apple fruit.
James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
An aromatic, lime-rich bouquet, then a more delicate palate with counterpoints of spritz, sweet lime and crunchy acidity. Top gold medal Tas Wine Show '09
Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Lime and ripe apple aromas; delicious palate, with lime juice and perfect acidity to offset the 40g residual sugar.
