Glaetzer-Dixon Family Winemakers Uberblanc Riesling

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2012 Vintage) says
Lovely nose with very fine, ripe citrus and stone fruits on offer here. This is struck like a chime, with terrific freshness and floral notes, some spicy edges too. The palate s deep and dense and delivers immense length, drive and depth here, some very assertive fruit flavours, great depth and balance. A superb wine in every respect.
Good Wine Guide
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
60% Tamar Valley, 40% Coal Valley. In a very distinctive style, fermented to near dryness (3% residual sugar), offset by high acidity (8.5g/1) accentuating the impression of dryness; also kept on lees for 5 months. The wine has abundant lime zest characters, its minerality stemming from the very low pH (2.9), its juicy lime-infused finish a lovely contrast.

Nick Glaetzer now makes two Uberblancs with the same name. This is the one with the red dots on the label. A blend of 60% Tamar and 40% Coal River Valley, this is a textural and structured riesling of slatey mouth feel and excellent persistence. It’s backward an lively for an 18 month old, upholding primary integrity of kaffir lime and granny smith apple. Finely structured acidity promises a confident cellar future.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
The nose on this southern Tasmanian riesling is compelling, showing grapefruit and complex citrus aromas, some light fresh herbal accents, swirling, sweetly fragrant perfume and a stony undercurrent. The palate has scintillating purity and elegance: bright, crisp and dry lemon pith and grapefruit here. A whisper-clean palate, fine and elegant - great length, drive and freshness.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Floral spice and talc aromas; the palate is full of energy, with lime, lemon and green apple; typically potent Tasmanian acidity, but not to the detriment of the wine; low alcohol adds drive.
