Now, this is the variety the Porongurup sub-region is really gaining kudos for. This one is a frisky, dry style of rizza that shows smells and flavours of lemons, limes and subtle florals. The palate is light, crisp and crystal clear, with juicy citrusy flavours, racy acidity, and a crunchy finish that keeps on truckin'. Great with sashimi kingfish.
This is a variety particularly well suited to the Great Southern and
especially the Porongurups, with its cooler ripening conditions and
colder night temperatures. Typically, the Riesling wines made
from this region are crisp and dry and can age well.
Nose: Delicately perfumed with lime fruit characters, blossom and hints
Palate: This is typical of the Rieslings from the Great Southern; it has
beautifully fine and delicate citrus characters with great length of

with gorgeous lime fruit flavours; there is a gentle tanginess to this
wine and this delicate acidity gives its excellent persistence of
This is a beautiful crisp dry wine that would be very well matched
with any fresh seafood, especially some King George Whiting!
Cellaring: Riesling like this is fantastic at any age. Enjoy as an aperitif while
fresh and young or cellar for some bottle age complexity. This
wine should continue to drink well for 6 + years.
