LANGTONS Six States of Riesling six-pack
Few grapes capture and express a sense of place quite like Riesling. This collection explores the diversity of the grapes from six disparate terroirs, yet all have gained critical acclaim with trophies, gold medals and point scores approaching perfection.
Included in this case:
Duke's Vineyard Magpie Hill Reserve Riesling 2017 (Porungorup, WA) - 99 points & Value for Money Star, James Halliday.
Rieslingfreak No.3 Watervale Riesling 2017 (Clare Valley, SA) - 95 points, James Halliday, Best in Show & 5 Gold medals Royal Sydney Wine Show ‘17, Gold medal Adelaide Wine Show ‘16.
Seppelt Drumborg Riesling 2017 (Henty, VIC) - 98 points, James Halliday.
Tamar Ridge Devils Corner Riesling 2016 (Tamar Valley, Tas) - 97 points, James Halliday & 3 Trophies including Best in Show Tasmanian Wine Show ‘17.
Robert Stein Riesling 2017 (Mudgee, NSW) - 18.5/20 Australian Wine Review & 3 Trophies including Best in Show Tasmanian Wine Show ‘17.
Clonakilla Canberra District Riesling 2016 (Canberra, ACT) - 96 points, James Halliday.
‘Be prepared to kneel before the perfection of a supreme riesling, the bouquet's blossom floating in the air of a spring day, the palate a celebration of the purity, elegance, drive and length of a white wine that you absolutely know will outlive your patience.’
99 points & Value for Money Star, James Halliday.
‘A generous riesling, opening up immediately on the lime-filled palate before life-giving minerality takes control on the palate and aftertaste.’
95 points, James Halliday.
‘An utterly beautiful riesling, the scented bouquet soars upwards from the glass, the flavour instantaneously filling the mouth with flavour-sweet (not sugar-sweet) lime
with an oxymoron of quietly emphatic acidity. In a word, ravishing.’
98 points, James Halliday.
‘Won three trophies at the Tasmanian Wine Show '17 thanks to its mix of extreme purity, intensity and length. Its balance and its aftertaste of lime, Granny Smith apple inevitability of day into night. It has limitless longevity, but I'll settle for 30 years.’
97 points, James Halliday.
‘As ever, this is such a star wine. A powerhouse dry Mudgee Riesling with a nose of sherbet, lime juice and grapefruit. Less lime cordial, more lemon juice, and with a powerful line through the middle. Long, driving acidity finishes everything off. Power packed and a great wine.’
18.5/20 Australian Wine Review.
‘Pale straw-green; Accelerates continuously from the first floral whiff through to the aftertaste; the mid-palate progressively builds ripe lime flavours as the wine is retasted, but is matched by the flinty acidity of the finish and lingering aftertaste. Sustained by that acidity, it has an outstanding future.’
96 points, James Halliday.
