Riesling is one of the most exciting varieties for a whole number of reasons, but one of them is that we can bottle and release it soon after vintage. A quick snapshot and first impression for you of how the season turned out. The vigour and freshness of the new vintage without any gloss or burnish from maturation.
So here is the 2017 Riesling, released in Cellar Door a week ago and already making many friends. We've tasted it in blind lineups once or twice, and we're struggling to suppress our excitement. Mind you, it will mature beautifully too (have a look at our vertical tasting notes).
Riesling has been a very successful variety for us over the last few years, with multiple gold medals and trophies, and some very lofty reviews. Our judgement is that the 2017 is one of the best yet, but of course we'll let you know what others think as the reviews come in. Meanwhile, don't be shy about getting some to try -- we're very confident you won't be disappointed!
