About

Aged Riesling is one of the great drinking pleasures of fine wine. Though, it’s rare to find Riesling released with some bottle maturity. Cellaring projects for wineries can be prohibitively expensive.

However, fortunately for the die hard Riesling fan, Porongorup Riesling specialists Abbey Creek make a point of holding back a portion of their Riesling to be released when it begins to take on the graceful secondary characters the variety is famous for. The 2011 is an excellent buy.

With an outstanding 96 points from James Halliday, bottled aged Riesling of this calibre doesn’t get much better value than this.

What It Tastes Like

“All three Abbey Creek Rieslings from ‘10 to ‘15 have the same pale quartz-green colour - amazing. This takes its time in waking up as you taste it to tease out its secrets, then as quick as a flash it takes hold on the finish and aftertaste, unsweetened lime and mineral exploding.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
