Tamar Ridge Botrytis Riesling (375ml)

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

What better to way to finish a meal than with a sticky, and what better way to display the quality of Tasmanian Riesling in this late harvest style. This has an enticingly aromatic nose of apricot, pears and musk that leads into a luscious palate of stone fruit and citrus. The wine is perfectly balanced between sweetness and clean acids and would pair well with washed rind cheeses or a fruit platter.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright, medium straw with gold tinges. This is a luscious dessert style with abundant honeydew, marmalade and citrus. A finer style of dessert wine with honey and toffee apple flavours, layers of complexity filling the mouth. Bright natural acidity balances the sweetness leaving a fresh long finish.

This is a finer style of dessert wine more in the European tradition with sweetness balanced by acidity and a low level of alcohol. A perfect style to enjoy with lemon tart or fresh ripe stone fruit.

Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Intense floral bouquet with gorgeous apricot-like botrytis characters. Very rich, luscious varietal palate with excellent flavour richness, depth and length held together by vibrantly crisp acidity.

Deep gold-green; extraordinary lusciousness venturing into tokay territory; candied citrus peel, cumquat and banana. 375 ml.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
As ever, hyper-concentrated and rich; luscious, sweet lime juice and pineapple fruit balanced by lingering acidity.

Peter Forrestal (2006 Vintage) says
A first-class sticky that shows floral notes, intense sweet lime and pear flavours and a bright, crisp, clean finish that lingers. The sweet fruit in the mid-palate is neatly balanced by the zingy acidity on the finish. Perfect with a pear, lemon or lime tart

This is Tasmania’s sweetest wine, so much so that if it were German it would be Beerenauslese. It’s loaded with dried stonefruits and zesty citrus flavours.
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Bright green-yellow; a complex bouquet showing obvious botrytis influence, continuing unabated into the palate; has length and persistence.

If you have ever driven around Germany's Mosel in the middle of winter and had to sleep in the car because an ex-girlfriend couldn't make up her mind where to stay (severe food poisoning is not directly relevant to this wine but it sure didn't help) you'd think making sweet wine in Tassie's a doddle. It is not. This is the first time conditions have been right since 2001. Grab this lovely elegant stuff in case it's another four years.
