2012 Riesling Block 1


Michael Cooper’s Buying Guide 2014

Estate-grown in The Elms Vineyard, on a ‘steeper slope’ which yields ‘riper fruit’ without noble rot, this Bannockburn wine is made in a style ‘similar to a late-harvest, Mosel spätlese’. The 2012 (*****) is very rich, with intense, citrusy, peachy flavours and a racy, lasting finish.

eRobertParker.com, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2013

The 2012 Block 1 Riesling presents a nose that is a little youthfully mute yet still offers delicate wafts of peach blossoms, fresh grapefruit and lemongrass, plus hints of jasmine and lime zest. Medium-sweet and light-bodied in style with a lower level of alcohol (8.5%), it is beautifully concentrated on the palate with a long, honeyed-lemon finish. Drink it now to 2020+. 91 points
