Cracka Review

From one of the grooviest winemaking outfits around comes this super-duper Geman-influenced style of riesling. It's a light, relatively dry style of wine that shows aromas of lime citrus, jasmine and nectorines adorn the nose, whilst the palate is fine and frisky, with bucket loads of citrus, a flinty mineral texture, and a bright, honey-edged finish. It's one for the cellar, but it would be great right now with a nice Thai salad.

Winemaker's Notes

White flowers, red apples and toasty honeysuckle aromas. Nervy mineral acidity opens to ripe grapefruit and white stone fruit, ending with more minerality and mouth-watering tannin.

Glaetzer-Dixon Reviews and Accolades

"Glaetzer-Dixon is a great wine story. Nick Glaetzer, from one of the Barossa Valley's oldest and most respected winemaking families, breaks with tradition by settling in Tasmania with his wife, Sarah Dixon. Glaetzer goes on to make the first Tassie wine to win the Jimmy Watson trophy with the Glaetzer-Dixon 2010 Syrah at last year's Royal Melbourne Show. He also crafts superb, German-influenced riesling, and the scintillating Uberblanc Goldpunkt 2012 was a standout at this year's Young Gun of Wine awards. With 60 per cent of its grapes from the Tamara and 40 per cent from Coal Valley, this wine has pristine floral/kaffir lime aromas. The palate is textured with a fine, continous line of acidity, providing both balance and tension.
