Truffle Hill Reserve Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

It is distractingly hard to think about Riesling when you're at a truffle farm. Or is it just me? Anyway, this Pemberton Riesling is a sprightly and engaging little number that fleshes out the dry grapefruity acidity of Pemberton Riesling with just a little sweetness. Lovely wine.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: - Very light straw, lime green hues, brilliant clarity.

Nose: - Lifted, quite forward grapefruit, lemon and lime aromas with mineral nuances.

Palate: - Medium bodied palate showing, generous, well defined varietal citrus fruit flavours. The palate shows richness with a core of steely acid in support. The finish is long and lingering with zesty citrus flavours persisting.

Fruit driven style all about retention of primary fruit flavours. This wine should express pure fruit clarity as the region, season and vineyard defines. This is a single vineyard estate grown wine. The fruit was hand picked and chilled in a cool room overnight before gentle whole bunch pressing to create an elegant, refined wine style. The character of the fruit and quality of the wine gives it tremendous aging potential. As it ages the flavours will become more complex, softer and honeyed.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Attractive, lively citrus nose with drying lemon acid flavours.

Ray Jordan (2009 Vintage) says
A really austere and tight bracing style with a limey minerally aroma providing an appealing attack on the senses. On the palate it's lean and tightly wound with a fine penetrating acid that sustains a long palate. Aperitif style as a youngster but with excellent cellaring potential.

This is showing the benefit of an extra year or two in bottle. IT's still showing excellent primary fruit characters though there is just a hint of subtle toastiness emerging. It's deliciously flavoured with a long precise palate. Lovely texture and mouth feel.

Developing with assurance; gentle orange blossom and lime zest flavours with a streak of mineral providing structure.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Tight lemon rind and mineral fruit; considerable CO2 spritz needs to settle down.
