The Whip Riesling is a classic, crisp and racy take on Canberra Riesling from Andrew McEwin at Capital Wines. It has an impressive track record, having consistently been awarded Gold Medals and Trophies for the last several vintages at the major Canberra Regional Wine Show, National Wine Show and the National Riesling Challenge. Pound for pound, this is one of the most reliable Rieslings in the region. Clean, crunchy with dazzling acidity, this is Canberra Riesling through and through.
What it Tastes Like
Lime and green apple, honeysuckle and citrus blossom characters. Crunchy and zingy acid dripping in lemon and lime flavours, it's classic in the best possible way. Line and length. Pitch perfect. What a bargain.
Gold Medal - 2016 National Wine Show
This wine has everything that we look for when making a riesling. A wonderful floral nose with hints of lime citrus, a line of beautiful natural citrus acidity on the palate, carrying through to impressive length. This is a stunning riesling that mirrors the success of its past vintages. Fantastic with Thai food, seafood or fish and chips.

Canberra. A mountain of potential. A sleeping giant of Australian wine. The ability of this region to produce world class wines in only a relatively short history is almost second to none in the whole country. We have some absolute geniuses to thank for developing this region. People have taken notice. Canberra wine is some serious gear. With the ability to produce everything from perfumed and tightly wound Syrah, to razor sharp Riesling and a bunch of emerging varieties in the ground excelling, Canberra will be one of the ‘must watch’ wine producing regions in Australia for many years to come.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
