Every now and then, Mike Bennie and I discuss wine in a semi-serious state. He maintains that Great Southern is the place to be for Australian Riesling. Wiser people usually stop arguing when MB gets the bull by the horns…
Such tension and energy here, and it feels kind of ‘Germanic’ in its intensity and drive. Wooly jumper/smoke, green apple, lime, crushed fennel and dried flowers. It’s dry, flinty and very crunchy, the bite of Granny Smith apple, with a lavender perfume, intense acidity, and chalky feel marks it out as a compelling wine. And the length. It’s sure to age beautifully. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front
