Wines by KT Melva Wild Fermented Riesling

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Brilliant, light straw-green; satin smooth, ripe citrus flavours caress the mouth from start to finish, the beguiling sweetness refusing to take no for an answer. Very seductive.
Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition 2013
Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
Kerri Thompson’s new Rizza Reload (as she puts it) is a delightfully crafted style that dares to take Clare riesling to happy new places where succulence and wild-ferment-derived texture are more at home than searing acidity. Soft, supple, juicy generosity of baked apple, clove, lime drops and even exotic star fruit ride through a finely textured mouth feel. Well-judged residual leaves the finish succulently off-dry.
Wine Taste Special Edition 86 - Clare Riesling 2012
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Kerri Thompson has Riesling in her blood, and only a winemaker with her experience would be brave enough to wild-ferment cloudy juice in used oak and leave it on lees for up to four months. The result? A stunning wine; a fragrant and flowery bouquet leads into a palate with a slippery texture, delicate acidity tying in the finish, perfectly balancing the 9 g/1 residual sugar.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
There is a freshness of Pink Lady Apple and lemon blossom, a breadth of white stone fruit and a backbone of citrus acidity and finely textured minerality. A riesling of pristine balance and length.
WINE 100 Magazine - 2011 2011
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; both the bouquet and palate are subtly different to the other KT Rieslings of the vintage, with a textural play in the mouth you can sense in the bouquet. Will shine with the appropriate food.
