Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Hanlin Hill Riesling from Petaluma is one of our most famous Rieslings. It's at the riper end of the scale at 12.3% alcohol, and shows bright lemony smells with some jasmine florals and a hint of tropical fruits along for the ride. The palate is quite rich for Riesling, but the punchy citrus flavours enliven the mouth together with frisky acidity, a flinty texture, and a dry, elongated finish. Excellent with pork roast and crackling.

Winemaker's Notes

The Hanlin Hill Vineyard is planted on predominantly red-brown loam over slate and is up to 550 metres above sea level. This vineyard has produced a very full flavoured dry slatey mineral Riesling, since the style first emerged with the first Riesling from Hanlin Hill in 1979.

The 2016 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is a bright delicate fragrant dry wine. The aroma has abundant citrus blossom and hints of spice and tropical highlights. The palate has beaut searing acidity, cut apples and lemon-lime intensity, and then finishes with sweet fruit and chalkiness. Beautifully crisp and focussed, the 2016 Hanlin Hill Riesling is a wonderful drink now wine, but one that will age gracefully for many decades, a testament to the great Hanlin Hill Vineyard in a great year.
