Reed White Heart Riesling 2023


A remarkable feinherb style. Tangy, tense and lithe with very high levels of natural acidity balanced by gentle sweetness. Flesh and zest of lime, grapefruit, white flowers, lemon, cumquat and tangerine. The acidity and salty minerality lend a sort of chisel and muscularity. This is certainly approachable now, but ideally better in a year or two, to finesse those structural angles. Juicy and piquant, the acidity, sweetness and fruit, interwoven perfectly and the sensations long. An Australian benchmark to be sure. The fruit is so full of tangy ripeness, yet there is no sourness. What a bargain. Waters Wine Co


“This is the first year I have stepped out of Geelong to find Riesling fruit. It seems to be that Riesling is a hard grape to come by these days, especially in my home GI. Until I can grow a large enough crop of my own in Torquay, I have decided to venture out to the Granitic climbs of Mount Alexander. The weather definitely threw some challenges my way, but this Riesling was a great example of what lower alcohol and high acidity in a cool vintage can embody. Think bright citrus, minerality and boniness, with a familiar cuddle.” Sierra Reed, Winemaker
