Angullong-FH-Riesling

2017 Angullong Fossil Hill Riesling

93 POINTS.  “Lovely beeswaxy aromas come through on the bouquet; lime, lemon and honey – delicious. The wine is light and crisp, dry and savoury, with a lean profile and a clean, crisp, drying finish, that leaves you wanting more. It tapers toward the finish, which is dry, lip-smacking and savoury. A very good riesling in a delicate, dry style.” Huon Hooke, Dec 2018

 

Elevation plays a key role in producing quality Riesling. Vineyards above 500m tend to produce more intensely flavours grapes. At over 600m, the Angullong Riesling vineyard has produced a wine of zest with crisp flavours of lime and lemon with a lovely cool climate minerally acidity.

 

A preprandial summer drink that should be enjoyed well chilled. If you decide to cellar this wine it will build in richness and develop lovely mature flavours.

92 POINTS  Very pale to the eye, tinges of youthful green. It has a very attractive citrusy nose of limes and lime blossoms with a hint of green apples. The palate is dry and clean and firm. Flavours reminded me of Rose’s Lime Marmalade – without the jammy sugar sweetness. The finish is tangy, almost like lemon sherbet. Would make a lovely counterpoint to a wedge of lemon meringue or Key Lime pie” Noosa FM Radio, Martin Field.

 

90 POINTS Glorious lemon balm and lime juice aromas. The palate is citrusy and delicious with good weight and breath. There is a little touch of honey on the finish.” The Real Review, Toni Paterson MW, Feb 2019
